Domaine Pinson Chablis 1er Cru La Foret

$70.14

The Pinson family have been tending vines in Chablis since 1640. So much a part of the regions history, there is actually a Rue Pinson in the town of Chablis itself. For most of the last century the winery was in the hands of Louis Pinson, who produced beautiful and traditionally made wines. Today his great-grand daughter Charlène, along with her father Laurent and uncle Christophe, manage the winery. In addition to Chablis AOC holdings, they own prized plots of Premier and Grand Cru vines.

The 1er Cru ‘La Forêt’ Chablis is made from grapes harvested from 65+ year vines, and was aged 3 to 4 years in neutral barrels.

“The 2018 Chablis La Forêt 1er Cru is fascinating to taste next to the Montmains, the larger appellation which it falls under. Finely cut and intensely saline, the Forêt bristles with tons of energy and cut. Crushed rocks, lemon peel, white flowers and white pepper give the Forêt its striking brilliance. I imagine the 2018 will need at least a few years in bottle. It is one of the most tightly wound wines in the cellar today.” –  Vinous

“A markedly citrus-inflected nose displays additional wisps of iodine, seashore and a hint of quinine. The more powerful and serious if less refined medium-bodied flavors possess a taut muscularity that makes itself felt on the energetic and beautifully textured finish where plenty of minerality adds a sense of lift to the focused if mildly rustic finish. Still, this is really quite good and worth considering.” – Burghound
