Romain Collet Forets Chablis Premier Cru 2017  - Invino

Romain Collet Forets Chablis Premier Cru 2017

Chardonnay  |  France


$35 for Chablis at this level is a HUGE no-brainer in our books! The Collet family has been making wine in Chablis since 1792, and it is simply irresistibly bracing, mouth-watering, and delicious Chardonnay from one of the finest terroirs on planet Earth!

Beautiful, zesty, crisp citrus fruits, crunchy pears, bitter almond and crushed oyster shells, just as Chablis should be (although for a lot less than normal if you’re an Invino client!). A little creamy complexity here, too -- so much to love! While it lasts!

About the Producer

The Collet estate went from selling to negociants in 1952 to producing their first vintage in 1979 under their own label. Gilles Collet helped his father, Jean, with the winemaking, and is also remembered as one of the most animated personalities in Chablis. He made spectacular wine and was the "life of the party". Gilles had to pass the torch to his son in 2008 due to health reasons, but had the utmost faith and trust in his son to carry on his legacy. The estate is now managed by Romain Collet who has stunned the wine world with his expressive wines, not to mention converting the family holdings to organic farming.
