Dominique et Romain Collet Chablis Valmur Grand Cru 2020 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
The Collet parcel of Valmur (.51ha) was planted in 1973 in the middle of the Grand Cru, with a west-northwest aspect that is unusual. The site is certified organic by the Bureau Veritas. Valmur has depth and aromatic generosity like its powerhouse counterpart to the east, Les Clos. For Chablis, it’s a warm site, and tends to be more floral and fruity, compared with mineral, and is more ready-to-drink than Les Clos. Romain’s unique west exposure allows longer hang-time, and he is often the last to pick. All of Romain’s Grand Cru wines are fermented and aged in used Burgundy barrels, transferred to stainless steel tanks for 2-3 months, then returned to barrel (about 15 months total maturation before bottling).
