Bright straw. Extrovert and lusty with a tilt towards gouleyant: turkish delight-tinged barrel tones, elderflower, peach and lime sorbets, fleur de sel. Seductive texturally; like crème anglaise. So many of the’08s are built for the academics among us, shrouded in mystery, tension, dramatic acidities and minerality. This ’08 Forêts is really about the fruit, gregarious and undeflected, all smiles and laughter. Delightful Forêts. No positive development to be had in keeping this; drink soon.
