Domaine Costal / Henri Costal is a unique collaboration between the well-known Chablis producer Domaine Jean Collet and Kermit Lynch. The project began with a simple barrel tasting with Kermit and led to a custom label, custom vinification, and bottling process exclusively for the American market. The end result of this first tasting was a terroir-driven Chablis from a single vineyard site called Truffières, loosely translated as “site where truffles grow.”
In 2018, owner Romain Collet was digging through his family’s archives and found the original label that his great-grandfather, Henri Costal designed and used when he founded the domaine. Romain proposed that we revive this historical label and use the Henri Costal name. In keeping with our desire to preserve historical European wine styles as well as labels, this was a natural fit. Beginning with the 2017 vintage, all wines from our collaboration with the Collet’s will be labeled as Henri Costal.
Domaine Costal / Henri Costal continues to produce the “Les Truffières” bottling and recently they have added bottlings from the premier crus Vaillons and Mont de Milieu. The vines are worked organically and Kermit and the Collet family together agree on a blend of stainless steel, foudre, and barrel vinifications. Our bottlings are not filtered or cold-stabilized—a true rarity in Chablis. The skill of the Collets and their excellent terroirscombine to give us wines of extraordinary purity and finesse. There is no mistaking it—one taste and you are in Chablis territory: zesty minerality, wet stone, freshness and nervosity.
