The new 2016 Vintage from Domaine Collet....
Big scores from Tim Atkin MW
Arriving this week. Last chance to buy at Pre Arrival Prices
 
Domaine Jean Collet was founded in 1952. The domaine comprised just 0.61 hectares and the harvest was sold to the negociants. In 1954 part of the harvest was domaine bottled and in 1959 the first exports to the USA commenced.
Collet

Gilles joined his father in 1979 and Romain, the fourth generation returned from wine school in Beaune and working abroad to complete the team in 2009.
Today the domaine has expanded to 40 hectares, from Petit Chablis, via village Chablis and premier cru, up to grand cru. Around 10 hectares are farmed organically.

The holdings include most of the top Premier Cru vineyards and the Grand Crus Les Clos and Valmur. Like Domaine Raveneau, the Collets use oak on some of their cuvees. The amount varies depending on the wine.
Collet Top 25
The domaine is firming entrenched as one of Chablis' top producers. They are included in Tim Atkin MW's Top 25.
To read an excellent article on the domaine from Bergman's Bourgogne click here.

The frost of 2016 decimated Collet's vineyards and total production was only 40% of usual. The quantity available of these highly rated wines is very small. 

We offer all 2016 Domaine Collect Chablis at a 15% Pre Arrival Discount. Below are 3 cuvees. To view the entire range click here. The wines arrive this week.

Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $142.95
Pre Arrival Price $121.50
33 bottles left
Collet Clos label Tim Atkin MW: 
There are only 1,000 bottles from this 0.16-hectare parcel, located in the lower part of Les Clos, and that in a year when frost spared the Collets. Fermented and aged in one-year old oak, it's mealy, complex and subtly wooded, with plenty of dry extract and weight and bracing acidity. 2020-28. 94 Points

Chablis Valmur Grand Cru 2016
Landed Price $137.95
Pre Arrival Price $116.95
23 bottles left

Collet Valmur label Tim Atkin MW: This excellent Valmur comes from a north-west-facing parcel that was planted in 1972 and expresses the more mineral side of the Grand Cru. Fermented in older wood, it's another triumph from this increasingly impressive domaine. Leesy, smoky and complex, with tangerine and citrus fruit flavours and pithy acidity. 2020-25. 
95 Points

Chablis 1er Cru Les Forets 2016
Landed Price $72.95
Pre Arrival Price $61.95
30 bottles left

Collet Foret Label Tim Atkin MW: This is now the fourth vintage of Romain Collet's concrete egg-fermented Premier Cru white, which is now established as one of the best interpretations of the site. Spring flowers, white pepper and a hint of crunch celery combine appealingly on the palate, with lovely lees and a fine, salty finish. 2019-25

Chartron Montrachet Large

Domaine Jean Chartron Montrachet Grand Cru 2015
4 bottles available

There is never more than a barrel of Montrachet at Domaine Chartron (in 2016 due to the hail there was none).

It is a rare wine.

John Gilman "View from the Cellar": 
The 2015 Montrachet chez Chartron is also an outstanding example of the vintage, offering up a deep, pure and very refined bouquet of peach, apple, spring flowers, a touch of fresh almond, a great base of chalky soil tones, vanillin oak and just a hint in the upper register of the butteriness to come with bottle age. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very beautifully balanced, with a fine core of very pure fruit, fine soil inflection, bright acids and excellent length and grip on the focused and very classy finish. This is one of the few Puligny based examples of Montrachet to be found outside of the Laguiche family holdings. 2018-2040. 95 Points
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": Here a 1-year-old barrel - the single barrel.
A big bright nose of ripe fruit and a deeper suggestion of minerality. Vibrant, some minerality, incredible weight/concentration and fat - yet never without balance. Exceptionally long.
Normally $1850.00
Bin Ends Special $1572.50
