2010 Romain Collet - Chablis 6-pack Sampler
6-pack sample includes: 2 bottles Montee de Tonnere - 2 bottles Montmains - 2 bottles Vaillons
Four generations of the Collet family have been farming the chalky soils of Chablis. The young Romain Collet joined the family estate in 2009 after making wine in both New Zealand and in France, and he is already showing off his savoir faire. The Collets farm in small lots in some of the appellation's most celebrated premier cru vineyards. We’ve put together this sampler so you can appreciate the nuances of these distinct terroirs for yourself, whether you allow them a few years in the cellar or enjoy them today. Consider a 6-pack sampler so you can enjoy them both now and later.
Romain Collet Description
2010 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre
Not far from grand cru territory, Montée de Tonnerre is found on the right bank of the Serein and is optimally placed with southwest sun exposure. Hailing from the smallest vineyard of the three, it shows off all of the elements we love in Chablis: floral aromas, notes of crushed stone, and nervy acidity with a succulence that keeps you coming back for more! Both fermented and aged in small 228-L Burgundian barrels, this is perfect Chablis for the Chardonnay lover who appreciates a judicious use of oak.
2010 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons
Planted on the left bank of the Serein River, the southwest sun exposure of Vaillons is perfect for obtaining ripe fruit in this cool climate. After a slow fermentation in tank, the wine is aged in large foudres, or neutral oak casks, allowing the wine to express its pure character. Perfumed with notes of gunflint, citrus and white peach, this classic Chablis will become rounder and fleshier with more time in bottle.
2010 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains
Montmains sits on the left bank of the Serein River, enjoying terrific southern sun exposure. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, it is bursting with fragrant aromas of white flowers, opening to a medium-bodied texture, and finishing with a racy, clean, acidity. Outstanding!
