My favorite of the trio, the 2018 Chablis 1er Cru La Forest is another beautiful wine that shows the generosity of this vintage with its open, seamless and medium-bodied style. Leading with plenty of white peach, white currants, flowers, white pepper, and flinty minerality, it has a wonderful sense of purity and precision as well as balance. As with the Vaillons, there’s a distinct salinity to this wine that shows slightly on the nose yet coats the palate on the finish. It has some upfront charm but will gain weight with 3-5 years of bottle age and keep for at least a decade. If drinking any time soon, it needs lots of air.

The 2018 Chablis 1er Cru La Forest is also showing well, opening in the glass with aromas of crisp green orchard fruit, citrus oil, beeswax, honeycomb and oyster shell. Medium to full-bodied, layered and textural, it's fleshy and enveloping, with a lovely spine of acidity and a long, saline finish. Like the Vaillons, this is quite demonstrative for a young Dauvissat Forest, and it will deliver considerable pleasure straight out of the gates.
