Decanter, 93 Points 

"Raveneau's Forêts vines are situated at the bottom of the slope, lying on deeper soils. An elegant, rather than demonstrative premier cru, this Forêts is not the densest of their premier cru, but shows pure citrus fruits on the palate, very restrained wood with some cedar and spice evident, and a lovely focus on the finish. Isabelle Raveneau feels this will blossom with time in bottle and I believe her." 

Wine Advocate, 91 Points 

"Notions of pear, citrus oil, white peach and spring flowers introduce the 2020 Chablis 1er Cru Forêt, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and precise wine that's elegant and fine-boned, concluding with a long, saline finish. As usual, this is the Raveneau premier cru to pick if you want to open a bottle young." 

Vinous, 90-92 Points 

"The 2020 Chablis Fôret 1er Cru has a pretty, generous nose of well-defined orange zest and Granny Smith apple scents, plus hints of quince and potpourri developing in the background. The palate is balanced, with modest weight, a slightly waxy texture and a fine bead of acidity. Quite tensile on the finish, where a dab of lemongrass lends complexity. (Drink between 2023-2035)"
