The Collet family can trace their winemaking heritage back to 1792.
However, it wasn’t until 1954 that the Domaine Collet bottled its first wine.
Gilles Collet began working with his father, Jean, in 1979, after studying oenology in Beaune. Under Gilles ownership, the estate has more than doubled to over 37 hectares and in 2009, his son, Romain, joined, after working in France and New Zealand.
Under Gilles ownership, the estate has more than doubled to over 37 hectaresCollet’s parcel of Valmur was planted in 1973. Like many of their neighbours, the Collet family has used sustainable practises for several years and in 2011 started their move toward organic viticulture.
Grapes are sorted in the winery before crushing in a pneumatic press. After cold settling (16°C) juice is transferred to French oak barrels (228 litres) for fermentation and ageing.
Collet are one of the few producers to ferment and age their Grands Crus entirely in oak barrels, however, their meticulous care and expertise throughout the process ensures that the wines are balanced and retain their chablisien minerality.
