In youth, this wine was ripe and rich, but with great balance and acid to spare, yet nary a hint of it's Chablis origins. It was actually quite delicious. I saved a few. Tonight the wine is pristine, a healthy mid-yellow, slightly greenish color. Ripe and rich, but with great balance and acid to spare, yet nary a hint of it's chablis origins. Yes, and still quite delicious. (with hard work, there is a slight briny/tide pool note occasionally, but this could instead be a hint of hazelnut. If someone had said "Meursault", I would have said--"sure".)
I've not had the Dauvissat Forest but have found other 2005 Chablis nicely long-lived and very good wines with hindsight. I think they do show both their vintage and their origin, but it's certainly easy to guess CdB blind.
Thanks, guys. Yeah, Rauno, I think perhaps I'm being a little overly dramatic, but I honestly do think that if this wine was presented to me blind, I would have had a tough time saying "Chablis".
