Burghound, 93 Points 

"A cool and airy nose freely offers up its aromas of green apple, quinine, shellfish and lemon zest. The utterly delicious but solidly intense flavors are sleek and mineral-infused while displaying very fine length on the bone-dry, clean and well-balanced finale. This too is very promising, indeed it's even better than it usually is, and should develop well over the next decade plus. *Burghound Outstanding!*

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.

John Gilman, 93 Points 

"The Domaine Raveneau Forêt is excellent in the 2020 vintage. The bouquet is bright and precise, but notably more reserved in personality at the present time than the Chablis villages. It delivers scents of lemon, pink grapefruit, apple, a fine base of limestone, paraffin and a topnote of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and tightly-knit, with a fine core, lovely backend energy and cut, impressive minerality and a long, elegant and vibrant finish. This is going to be excellent, but it will demand a bit of bottle age before it starts to drink with generosity. (Drink between 2027-2060)" 

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." 

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.
