The Forets presents with Notes of fern and undergrowth, blended with more spicy notes of cocoa and pepper, give an energetic, chalky, very mineral taste in the mouth.
Burghound (BH): 89-92
"There are similar elements on the nose here with that of the Butteaux though in this case there is a more pronounced citrus character. I very much like the intensity and detail of the mineral-driven, chiseled and overtly austere medium-bodied flavors that possess a borderline salty finish. This is excellent and I suspect that the youthful austerity will dissipate relatively quickly."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 88-91
"Hazy pale yellow. Expressive, complex aromas of green melon, lemon and sexy spices, lifted by a floral note. Round, lush and generous on the palate, with enticing sweetness to its ripe citrus fruit and floral flavors. Nicely concentrated and persistent."
Antonio Galloni-Vinous (AG): 88-91
"The 2012 Chablis Forets is one of the more immediate wines in this range. Lemon, pastry and white flowers emerge with time in the glass. Today, the Forets comes across as raw, powerful and in need of time, as the aromatics, flavors and texture are not yet fully integrated."
