2020 Domaine Jean Collet & Fils Chablis 1er Cru Les Forêts

$44.99
2020 Domaine Jean Collet & Fils Chablis 1er Cru Les Forêts

Heir to a long line of Chablis Growers, Jean Collet started his Domaine in 1954. Later, when Jean retired, his son Gilles took over but became afflicted by nerve damage on part of his body and had to pass the torch early to his son Romain. At 21, Romain took over the domain and began working in the cellar and the vineyard. He started incorporating more organic and biodynamic practices into his regimen, achieving certification in 2018. The wines have seen an improvement from better farming practices with the use of natural yeasts, a more sustainable approach, and different vessels for fermentation, including concrete eggs, which he expertly puts to good use for the Les Forests. Romain is dedicated to extending the quality of his wines, and the Forets is a beautiful, classic Chablis example. The wines from Jean Collet are very rare, and we have the only bottles of this wine available in the USA from any vintage and 2020 is the best example of this wine ever from Collet.


Jasper Morris 92-94 pts! "Made in cement eggs, plus 10% barrel. Fine mid lemon yellow. A particularly classy nose, with a certain depth of fruit lemon scented, very elegant yet with intensity and persistence. Perhaps the best aftertaste to date in this cellar."
