Winemaker Notes

Gorgeous aromas of butterscotch and caramel flood the senses, leading to an elegant, fine-tuned palate reminiscent of the limestone terroir where the grapes are sourced from. Preserved lemons, marzipan, pears and honey notes flood the perfectly balanced, complex mouthfeel. Silky and intense, this bottling leaves an enduring impression in the seemingly endless, textured finish.

Critical Acclaim

D 96
Decanter
Globetrotting Philippe Colin may be based in Chassagne-Montrachet, but he's not averse to travelling to South Africa or even neighbouring Puligny-Montrachet for that matter, where he owns 0.28ha of this grand cru. The 2017 is rich, sappy and waxy, a focussed and deftly oaked wine with notes of orange zest and waxed lemons.
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru is immensely promising, unfurling in the glass with an appropriately reserved nose of lemon oil, candle wax, white currants, toasted bread and dried spring flowers. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and layered with a satiny attack, excellent concentration at the core and a long, expansive finish. This must number among the best kept secrets in grand cru white Burgundy, and I encourage readers to seek it out.

Wine Spectator
Toasted brioche, baking spice and butterscotch aromas and flavors surround the core of peach, golden apple and hazelnut in this extroverted white. There’s plenty going on, including excellent harmony and a vibrant structure that will support this for years. Best from 2021 through 2029. From France.
BH 94
Burghound.com
Once again pungent sulfur-tinged aromas dominate the nose. More interesting are the creamy and highly sophisticated medium weight plus flavors that exude plenty of minerality on the impressively long if somewhat one-dimensional finish. This firmly structured effort will clearly need to develop more depth to merit the upper end of my projected range.

Philippe Colin Winery Image

Philippe Colin’s heritage runs deeply in Chassagne-Montrachet, which is situated in the Côte-d’Or and inhabits only 300 residents. His father, Michel Colin-Deléger’s lineage traces back on both sides of the family to the 1850s when their ancestors settled in the area. He inherited vineyards from both the Colins and his father-in-law, the esteemed Georges Deléger. Michel founded his winery, Domaine Michel Colin-Deléger, in 1987, garnering a reputation as one of the top estates in the region, producing renowned premier and grand cru wines. In 1988, after studying vititculture in Beaune, Philippe joined his parents in the family business working closely by their sides. During this time Philippe gained a plethora of knowledge from his father, sparking his passion for winemaking. In 2004 when Michel retired (keeping just three parcels for himself), Philippe and his brother Bruno decided to split the estate into two separate domaines in order to respect their different approaches to winemaking. Domaine Philippe Colin was founded in the same year. Philippe’s efforts were soon acknowledged, with the domaine gaining an abundance of international prestige and recognition. Domaine Philippe Colin’s holdings stretch approximately 30 acres with vineyards mainly in the Chassagne-Montrachet area but also in Santenay, Puligny-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. He covers 24 appellations in total through his selections, which are classified as Bourgogne, Village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru. Philippe upholds the philosophy of respecting the vineyards, intervening as little as possible to allow the purest expression of terroir to shine through, as each plot is markedly different.

A source of some of the finest, juicy, silky and elegantly floral Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet lies just to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, a village with which it shares two of its Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet itself and Bâtard-Montrachet. Its other two, which it owns in their entirety, are Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. And still, some of the finest white Burgundy wines come from the prized Premiers Crus vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. To name a few, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Perrières, Les Referts and Les Combettes, as well as the rest, lie northeast and up slope from the Grands Crus.

Farther to the southeast are village level whites and the hamlet of Blagny where Pinot noir grows best and has achieved Premier Cru status.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
