When first released the 2018 Forets seemed a little lacking in depth but time has been incredibly helpful in providing a clearer picture of where this wine is headed – it has filled out and the fruit, clean and pure, has developed a concentration that has brought forward a wealth of complexity. White peach and apple on the nose with a buttery edge on the palate that gives way to a touch of salinity on the finish. (24/7/2021)
Piuze has worked for the great and the good in Burgundy including Olivier Leflaive. He eventually set up his own winery in Chablis in 2008. No vineyards were purchased but through connections made over the years good relationships were established with various growers. Piuze is keen to put himself forward as winemaker rather than grower but still plays a strong part in how the vines are managed.
His wines have a focus on purity of fruit and he is careful in his use of oak ensuring it is used where appropriate rather than a blanket usage policy. Piuze is also interested in longevity and the evolution of flavour in his wines making even the Petit Chablis worth holding on to in good years.
