The 2010 Chablis La Forest shows off the rich, creamy side of Chablis in its layered, expansive fruit. It possesses gorgeous inner tension in a style that is at once powerful and harmonious. A multi-dimensional, textured finish rounds out the close. The Forest is made from 30 parcels that encompass a variety of soil types, some that are more compact and shallow, others that are deeper and more fractured, a hypothetical combination of Sechet and Vaillons.
The vintage is marked by very low yields. Couleur and millerandage were most pronounced in the grand crus, where yields were 40% lower than normal. At the same time, the wines have retained plenty of acidity, making for very interesting personalities across the range.
