Swank, assured nose with broad lines and brushstrokes: quite a deft frame of oak. Flint, tarragon, aniseed, sea breeze. A semolina-like yeastiness. A sherbet-y cucumber-saline in the mouth, sculpted and streamlined, medium-full: lemon oil, asian pear, apple dew. Persistent, kaffir lime and silex finish. Refined, classy Forêts. Now – 2017.
