Collet Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 19
In just over a decade, winemaker Romain Collet has turned his family’s reliable if unremarkable domaine into one of the very best sources in Chablis. The wine press has taken notice too; William Kelley finds “a lot to admire here,” and Jasper Morris recently opined that Romain Collet “is moving towards joining the pantheon in Chablis.”
The 2019 has an expressive nose, with ripe fruit mingling with notes of oak. As usual, the oak is fairly prominent just after bottling. In our experience, the prominence fades over a year or so, leaving a wine with a lovely balance between oak and fruit. The 2019 shows ripeness, with orchard fruit (white and yellow peaches) mingled with citrus; and the intensity is definitely at Grand Cru level.
