2015 Chablis 1er Cru “Vaillons”

Domaine Costal

2015 Chablis <i>1er Cru</i> “Vaillons” Domaine Costal - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



We have long revered the Vaillons premier cru here at KLWM thanks to the long-lived, old-vine bottling from Domaine François Raveneau. 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. In the hands of the talented young Romain Collet, Vaillons reaches its full potential in this bottling done specially for KLWM. 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. –Dixon Brooke
