Tasting Notes

The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet is a lovely introduction to Colin's style, wafting from the glass with aromas of yellow orchard fruit, honeycomb and a subtle touch of praline. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and succulent, with a generous core of vibrant fruit and a nicely defined finish. This will offer a broad drinking window. This 13-hectare domaine, based in Chassagne-Montrachet's ZAC, dates back to 2004, when Philippe and brother Bruno partitioned the former Domaine Colin-Deléger. Philippe Colin exudes an air of quiet seriousness, and his style is pure and elegant, beautifully defined by site, eschewing any stylistic successes. New oak is only a modest presence, and it's increasingly larger format barrels that stock this cellar. This tasting was very impressive indeed, and I encourage readers to seek out these wines. Clearly, the domaine flies somewhat under the radar when one considers the quality to be found in the bottle.
