2021 Henri Costal 'Vaillons' 1er Cru Chardonnay Chablis
Winemaker Notes: This wine is floral with the touch of brine that is so typical and desirable of Chablis, but it is the lovely mouthful of stone fruit and hint of lemongrass that make this premier cru so intriguing and fun to drink.
Henri Costal, a vigneron from Chablis, gifted the Collets—another family of vignerons in Chablis—their first-ever parcel of Vaillons when Henri’s daughter married a Collet son in 1952. Several decades later, Henri’s great-grandson from that same union, Romain Collet, resurrected Henri’s long-defunct label, as seen on this bottle, in homage. It’s a timeless label for an old soul of a wine. This creamy, smooth, utterly drinkable, delicious Chablis is for all generations to enjoy.
