The Henri Costal project is a recent collaboration between great Chablis winemaker Romaine Collet and American importer, Kermit Lynch. The project is a special ode to Henri Costal, Romaine’s great-grandfather. Both this classic label and winemaking are methods of preserving historical European styles, easy to overlook today. The uniqueness of the Costal Chablis project is its exclusivity to the American market. The project began as a simple barrel tasting and eventually resulted in legendary wines. The Chablis speak to a sense of place with purity and finesse. The label keeps its secret here as the wine is actually made by Domaine Jean Collet, one of the most standout producers in Chablis, a family domaine since 1792.
"Mont de Milieu" is a Premier Cru parcel in Chablis with this particular fruit coming from younger vines. Ageing is done for 14 months in 600 liter demi-muid barrels. This bottle can certainly be cellared for future enjoyment, only intensifying the complex minerality that is already there.
