Collet Chablis 1er Montmains 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.

Montmains 1er cru 2020 has the same élevage as the Vieilles Vignes, but comes from different soils.  The vineyard lies on the same Kimmeridgian limestone as does the Côte d’Or — soils filled with ancient sea fossils (and less clay than those of Collet’s Vieilles Vignes). The soils join with the vineyard’s south-east exposition to add precision and length. This Montmains is surprisingly rich, but also has supporting freshness that will carry it for perhaps three to five years.
