Henri Costal Chablis Premier Cru Vaillons 2017
Domaine Costal continues to produce the “Les Truffières” bottling and recently they have added a bottling from the premier cru Vaillons. The vines are worked organically and Kermit and the Collet family together agree on a blend of stainless steel, foudre, and barrel vinifications.
Domaine Costal is a unique collaboration between the well-known Chablis producer Domaine Jean-Collet and Kermit Lynch. The project began with a simple barrel tasting with Kermit and led to the first of now two cuvées, a custom label, and custom vinification and bottling process exclusively for the American market. The end result of this first tasting was a terroir-driven Chablis from a single vineyard site called Truffières, loosely translated as “land of the truffles.”
