Costal Chablis Truffieres 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"There is no mistaking it – one taste and you are in Chablis territory: zesty minerality, wet stone, freshness and nervosity. And is that a hint of black truffle in the bouquet? Tasting the three vintages that have resulted from this collaboration, we all noticed an “elusive” suggestion of divine black truffles. Maybe that is why the vineyard parcel has been called “Truffières” for so long." - Kermit Lynch / Winery

Domaine Costal is a unique collaboration between the well-known Chablis producer Domaine Jean-Collet and Kermit Lynch. The project began with a simple barrel tasting with Kermit and led to the first of now two cuvées, a custom label, and custom vinification and bottling process exclusively for the American market. The end result of this first tasting was a terroir-driven Chablis from a single vineyard site called Truffières, loosely translated as “land of the truffles.” Domaine Costal continues to produce the “Les Truffières” bottling and recently they have added a bottling from the premier cru Vaillons. The vines are worked organically and Kermit and the Collet family together agree on a blend of stainless steel, foudre, and barrel vinifications. Our bottlings are not filtered or cold-stabilized—a true rarity in Chablis. The skill of the Collets and their excellent terroirs combine to give us wines of extraordinary purity and finesse. There is no mistaking it—one taste and you are in Chablis territory: zesty minerality, wet stone, freshness and nervosity. Read less
