Chablis Premier Cru Forêt 2011 - Raveneau
It's one of Montmains' strongest values. Its soil contains clays of every color. It heats up slowly, but retains heat well afterwards. These are complex wines because of the variety of the clay and the abundance of pebbles which allow good drainage. A beautiful richness and a discreet nose of liquorice.
"Raveneau's 2011 Chablis 1er Cru Forêt is drinking very well, offering up an expressive nose of preserved lemon, white flowers, beeswax and even creamy white peach. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied and elegantly glossy, with good depth and concentration, underpinned by racy acids. While some of the more tight-knit 2011s in the Raveneau cellar still need a few more years—most notably the Montée de Tonnerre—readers who own this lovely Forêt, which surpassed my expectations, should feel no qualms about starting to pull corks."
