For me, this is the essence of Chablis.  Loads of seashell, flint, and saline apple flavors in a perfectly balanced, very long, wine.  Classy and with huge potential in cellar, but approachable now with a little air and a not-too-cool serving temperature.  A wine to pay attention to.

"A wonderfully complex and well-layered nose of green fruit, lemon zest, sea breeze and iodine is followed by a beautifully well-delineated and mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that culminate in an equally complex, balanced and highly persistent finish. This very fine effort is an exercise in harmony and punch."Allen Meadows 91-93 points

"The 2010 Chablis Forets opens with suggestions of smoke, crushed rocks and minerals of all sorts, hinting at what is to follow. The Forets shows off layers of mineral-infused white stone fruit in an energetic, vibrant style. The finish is long, clean and beautifully focused. I especially like the way the fruit lingers on the aftertaste. This is a gorgeous wine endowed with fabulous balance and precision. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020."Wine Advocate 92 points
