Jean Collet Cuvee Delphine 2016
White Burgundy! Chardonnay, from certainly one of the greatest places on this planet to grow it (just outside the Chablis appellation), pure as the driven snow, absurdly well-priced (How do we do it?? We often wonder, too, sometimes…), and here to set your skin all a-tingle. OVER 50% off! Drink it up!
There are a LOT of Collets in this area making wine. This project (Cuvee Delphine) is a collaboration between cousins Jean and Romain Collet (Romain is a well-known and highly respected winemaker) from a special parcel just outside of the town of Tonnerre (owned by Romain’s sister), northeast of Chablis. It is…well...crazily underpriced considering the level of deliciousness, not to mention the utterly fantastic quality of 2016. It’s organic and unsulphured, too! Bonus!
SO --- think PURE, clean, racy and fresh-as-the-day-is-long. Citrus, of course, also a dash of melon and pear/apricot notes, but really it’s ALL about the minerality, stoniness and no-oak character that just sets your mouth and salivary glands all alight. LOVE IT! Chablis! Priced like THIS? So rare --- get more than you think you will want is our advice! It will go fast and who KNOWS when we can score something like this again!
