Intense aromas of mineral reduction sea breeze and iodine lead to lush yet reasonably precise medium-bodied flavors that are still youthfully tight. There is moderate austerity to the mouth coating and mineral-inflected finish where the saline aspect really surfaces. Good juice with good mid-term cellaring potential. ♥ - Comments: Outstanding

The essence of Kimmeridgian limestone comes through in the focus and cut of the 2011 Chablis Forets. Oyster shells slate flint and citrus are just some of the many nuances that come together in this bright focused Chablis. In 2011 the Forets is all energy and verve. Michel calls Forets the most `right bank' of the left bank wines. Anticipated maturity: 2015+. -Antonio Galloni

Classic aromas of powdered stone and mint plus a light lactic quality. Densely packed and serious with a dusty quality to the flavors of lime blossom licorice gunflint and white pepper. Very limestone-driven wine with sneaky length. With its smoky minerality this is like a mini-Clos.
