96 points Wine Advocate
"A brilliant wine in the making, Dauvissat's 2022 Chablis 1er Cru La Forest unfurls in the glass with youthfully reductive scents of citrus oil, crisp stone fruit, white flowers, oyster shell and subtle hints of orange blossom. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with superb depth at the core and an electric finish, this cuvée has navigated the vintage's extremes with ease."

94 points James Suckling
"More volume and concentration without the pucker and rockiness typical of the Montee de Tonnerre. This is a real crowd pleaser. A confluence of stone and orchard fruit on the palate. It shows old-vine power from a warmer site. While this is an ersatz grand cru for many, this doesn't quite deliver the clarity of some of its siblings."

94 points Tim Atkin
"Pure and focused, this is a gorgeous La Forest (written Forêt on the AOC map) with dense fruit packed onto the palate. Guava, plumcot and fresh croissant pop on the nose. The palate adds an aniseed influence. The rich mouthfeel is encased—even dominated—by resolutely firm acidity. This is one for the ages."

94 points Jasper Morris
"The barrels are in the grand cru part of the cellar for once. Clear pure pale lemon colour. The bouquet is classic but not yet very developed. Everything is entirely there but less demonstrative. The structure of this wine is so impressive, pure white ripe apple, but stretches so far back on the palate, before a slightly more saline finish."

94 points Vinous
"The 2022 Chablis Fôrets 1er Cru, taken from a feuillette, has a detailed, dried honey and sous-bois-tinged bouquet, gaining delineation as it opens in the glass. The palate is quite citric on the entry, with fine tension, plenty of energy and a tightly wound and precise finish. Wonderfully focused, this Premier Cru conveys elegance and grace."

94 points Burghound
"There is ample citrus influence suffusing the nose that could be from nowhere else but Chablis with its array of seashore, algae and oyster shell scents. The caressing but notably denser and more powerful larger-bodied flavors coat the palate while retaining an attractive texture on the strikingly persistent finish that is shaped by bright acidity. This can't match the MdT for refinement but it is presently more complex and should age just as well." *Sweet Spot*
