Collet Chablis Vieilles Vignes 2020
Romain Collet took over as principal winemaker not long ago, and he has transformed the winemaking. He is both a very talented winemaker and an innovator — for proof one need only walk through the cellar, where the stainless steel tanks and large foudres are now joined by cement eggs, demi-muids, and most recently, amphorae.
Collet’s Chablis Vieilles Vignes 2020 is from truly old vines — on average about 85 years. The wine is now raised entirely in stainless steel, so all of its considerable complexity comes from the old vines. The warm growing season in 2020 produced an attractive, fleshy ripeness that will make this wine drink well immediately, either as an aperitif or matched with a wide range of dishes. Its orchard fruit mingles well with the citrus notes, and it has a pleasant round finish.
