2006 Bessin Jean-Claude, Chablis La ForestDec. 2008
Medium-pale yellow. The nose is like a deeper, slightly more comfortable ‘Montmains’ with higher tones over nicely integrated sweeter and denser notes. Just a faint whiff of SO2 now and then. Again a really impressive minerality, but this time with a little extra softness from ripe but understated fruit. Again there’s good acid balance and a super diminuendo length.
2001 Dauvissat Vincent, Chablis La ForestMar. 2004
Light gold in colour. The nose is deep and honeyed. Understated and mineral is the palate, the best feature being the really excellent balance. The finish lingers with the fine acidity – a bottle that was suddenly empty – how did that happen?
