Domaine Costal Chablis "Vaillons" 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Most well-made Chablis could be called racy, but Vaillons takes the precise, linear style of traditional Chablis to a whole new level. You could call it the Puligny-Montrachet of Chablis. Romain vinifies the wine with wild yeasts and raises it in a combination of large foudres and stainless steel tanks. The Kimmeridgean seashell deposits make their presence greatly felt on the long, chiseled, bracingly fresh finish. Drinking well now, this is also a worthy candidate for your cellar.

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
