Enjoyed an amazing bottle of 2000 Dauvissat La Forest Chablis last night. Light straw in color, the wine had an intense oyster shell and floral nose. On the palate, a powerful, oily citrus wine with perfect acidity, distinct minerality, and exceptional balance. An elegant complex wine that had a full mouthfeel without being too heavy. The long pine nut, lemon, stony finish was highly appealing!
Have to say, one of the best Chablis I have had to date (ahead of quite a few PC and GC Raveneau). Was not sure what to expect prior to opening, turned out to be a wow wine that drank consistent over the span of 3+ hours! Sadly, my only bottle.
I really love that vintage of that wine too, year in and out one of my favorites, but I think the '00 really nailed it. Thanks for the update on where it is; I think I only have 2 left so very good to know.
