2018 Domaine Jean Collet & Fils Chablis
Romain Collet represents the fourth generation of winemakers of this Domaine. Their parcels are located on the best slopes on either side of the Serein river, with best exposure to create focussed and mineral wines in a classic style. Today the Domaine covers around 40ha from Petit Chablis, village, premier cru and grand cru holdings – Romain has already converted the entire cru production over to organic farming and intends to increase this ratio to 100% in the coming years.
Bright pale straw colour with a watery hue. Scents of pear, lime and green apple meld into subtle dried honey and wet slate notes. Mouthfilling flavours of pear, lime and green apple show terrific intensity over a back drop of wet stone, infusions of fresh herbs and an oyster shell like minerality. Brisk acidity counter pointing a round voluminous mouth feel. Long mouth watering slatey mineral like finish.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
