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.
“Les Truffieres” is a special partnership of the Costal project with winemaker Bernard Raveneau, the master of Chablis. It hails from the vineyard of the same name, which means “Truffles,” just north of the village of Chablis. The result is a vinification in stainless steel, barrel, and foudre, and a wine alluding to an essence of truffles, leading to why the vineyard may have been called “Les Truffieres.”
