2019 Domaine Jean Collet et Fils Chablis 'Les Forets' 1er Cru
Domaine Jean Collets et Fils are spread over the best slopes of the Right and Left Banks of the Serein with 4 levels of appellation. Their wines stand out for their purity freshness, finesse and minerality.
The plot of Les Forêts is on the left bank of the river Serein and is composed mainly of blue clay, which makes for a quite compact soil; the Domaine encourages soil work to encourage the root system of the vines to draw deep down into the richness of the soil. This particular terroir delivers wines of original complexity.
Each wine of the Domaine is vinified differently though all undergo spontaneous alcoholic fermentation. The Forets is aged for 14-16 months in 90% in ovoid concrete vats and 10% in Burgundy oak.
Aromas of white flowers and exotic fruit lead to a structured, rich and fatty wine, with acidity on the finish, and beautiful length of ripe fruit.
It goes wonderfully with finely cooked fish, white poultry and even a cheese platter
