René and Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Premier Cru la Forest 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

88 points Wine Spectator: Light and charming, with white pepper, cherry and red currant notes leading to an iron-tinged finish. Drink now. 1,000 cases made. 88 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Bright ruby. Raspberry, peppery spices and minerals on the nose; smells a lot like a pinot. Juicy, spicy and fruity, offering vibrant red fruit flavors and a touch of candied violet. This precise, minerally syrah, which was raised entirely in stainless steel, shows good energy and cut on the tannin-free finish.

Longboard Vineyards:
Try balance, harmony and nature for starters. Surfing is part sport, part meditation and all working within, rather than against, nature. Winemaking? Pretty similar approach. Both surfers and winemakers reach the summit of their respective crafts when they attain an understanding of, and a respect for, the environment in which they work (and play). Adapting to their surroundings, they achieve peak performance, on the waves and in the vineyards.

Medium-weight and linear, exuding mineral and spice flavors, with a hint of lemon underneath, this bright white finishes long and spicy. Drink now through 2017.

The 2011 St.-Peray Fleur de Crussol was not yet in bottle but what I tasted offered explosive minerality as well as abundant nectarine tangerine quince and white flower characteristics. Crisp and full with a Burgundian-like texture this beauty should drink well for 5-7 years. --- RP Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Medium yellow. Clove spice dominates the nose. Yellow fruit aromas are complicated by smoky saline minerality and a whiff of honey. Boasts good texture but finishes a tad dry. I wanted more personality. This was 12.9% potential alcohol chaptalized to 13.4; the 2010 weighs in at 13.9%. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Rich, structured and full-bodied, this is an open take on Pouilly Fuissé. It’s shows ripe white fruits like pear and quince, along with fine acidity and a fresh citrus streak. Age for a year or drink now.
