Henri Costal 'Les Truffières,' Chablis, France 2021

This particular Chablis has a distinctly smoky and flinty essence, with a strong sense of determination. Chablis' unique terroir of Portlandian marls (in this plot particularly) obviously contributes to this mineral drive, but the cool growing season of 2021 has certainly made it clear that 2021 Chablis truly embodies the essence of the region, giving it the bones for a great vintage. Costal's Chablis has a surprisingly broad and powerful palate, tangy tangerine and pineapple hints, and a long and satisfying saline finish. - Kimberly's notes from her visit with Romain Collet

Domaine Costal/Henri Costal is a unique collaboration between Chablis producer Domaine Jean Collet and Kermit Lynch, with Romain Collet at the helm. During my visit in 2023, I was struck by the pure tension and energy of their Chablis. The project started with a barrel tasting with Kermit, which led to custom labeling, vinification, and bottling processes exclusively for the American market. The result was a terroir-driven Chablis from a single vineyard site called Truffières, named after the site's truffle growth. Owner Romain Collet discovered his great-grandfather's original label from when he founded the domaine in 2018 and proposed reviving it and using the Henri Costal name. If you like Raveneau, I strongly urge you to explore Costal wine.
