The 2012 Chablis 1er Cru la Forest from Vincent Dauvissat has a lovely nose, a little more tropical than I remember it, with touches of guava and pineapple infusing the citrus fruit, subtle marine influences developing with aeration in the glass. The palate is fresh on the entry with a nice touch of bitter lemon, moderate weight in the mouth with a honeyed seam emerging toward the finish. It takes a little time to enter its stride, but it is certainly worth the wait. ||Unfortunately I was not able to visit Domaine Vincent Dauvissat. The unseasonably hot termperatures meant that winemakers, especially meticulous winemakers such as Vincent, had to be in their vineyards to tend the vines and of course, this is more important than a visiting journalist who can always return at a later dates, which is precisely what I intend to do. I can only compensate with a solitary tasting note taken at UK importer Domaine Direct's portfolio tasting just afterwards. I look forward to tasting this exemplary producer's 2012 and 2013s later this year. eRobertParker.com.August, 2015
