Humble, Delicious Unoaked 2022 Chablis under $30

Everyday white Burgundy to pair with anything

Over the weekend we drove from Beaune up to Chablis to taste with our producers there. If you’ve read our recent notes on Cyril Gautheron’s 2022s you’ll know we were blown away by his entire lineup – Saturday’s tasting confirmed our initial impressions. We’ve added a few more cuvées to our shopping cart, and can’t wait to share them with you later this spring. (If you missed them in the March Futures that closed yesterday, let us know and we’ll try to squeeze you in.)

The even better news from Saturday’s Chablis visit was that at Gautheron’s crosstown rival* Domaine Jean Collet, the 2022s are just as good. Across the board – village, premier cru, grand cru – the vintage produced vibrant, precise wines full of perfectly ripe fruit and cut with classic chablisien tension. Winemaker Romain Collet’s terrific lineup of 2022 premier crus will be in this year’s May Futures, but their humble Chablis 2022 is always bottled early and arrived in Newton late last year.

The 2022 Chablis from Collet is open, fresh, fruit forward, and delicious. It carries less of the piercing minerality found in the premier crus, making it ready for immediate consumption and a perfect match for aperitifs this Spring (whenever that arrives). Look for dry notes of lemon zest, saline, and chalk – pair with cheese and crackers at the end of a long week.
