You would be hard pressed to find a hotter, more talented producer in Chablis right now than Patrick Piuze. While his outstanding lineup of wines speaks volumes to his skill, what's perhaps more interesting about his success is that he's an outsider thriving in a traditionally tight-knit community of vignerons in Chablis. But make no mistake, the Quebecois has been welcomed with open arms by the Chablisienne and today is making incredibly thrilling, hand-crafted wines that will make you an instant fan with your first sip.
This wine is one of his top Premier Cru: Les Forêts. Located on the western side of the Serein river, Forêts' slope sits facing south - absorbing generous sunlight - atop mineral rich Kimmeridgian soils. The fruit produced here is racy, incredibly complex, and utterly delicious. And what Piuze does with this bounty is nothing short of magical; virtually transporting drinkers to the 1er Cru vines!
Coming from a "classic" Chablis vintage, the 2020 Forêts is a perfect expression of Burgundy's northernmost region. It displays the character that you look for when you open a bottle of Forêts: medium weight, with vibrant notes of citrus and an awesome mineral and flint spine to bring everything together. This is an exceptional bottle of wine that perfectly illustrates why Piuze has developed such a passionate following!
