Winemaker Notes

Ethereal, elegant yet powerful and more subtle than Les Combes, this rich wine displays refined fruit—inclusive of Asian pears—wet stone and less pronounced oak flavors. The terroir is evident in the extra-long, dry finish.

The handpicked grapes were gently pressed and the juice was racked to stainless steel tanks, where it underwent natural fermentation. The wine was then moved to French oak barrels (25% new) for malolactic fermentation. It was aged in barrel for 12 months, with periodic lees stirring and then racked to tank where it rested for two months before a light filtration and bottling. Only eight barrels are produced of this premier cru wine.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Saint Aubin 1er Cru Charmois certainly has a more nuanced bouquet compared to the Saint Aubin Les Combes this year. This makes you work a little bit, eking out those scents of granite and apple blossom. For sure it is unashamedly more austere than the Les Combes but very nicely focused. The palate is rounded on the entry with a brush of honey. There is a pleasant sense of energy here just on the back palate, almost like the aftertaste from Shezchuan pepper, the mouth tingling with spiciness. It completes what I find to be an intriguing Saint-Aubin, but I would afford it a couple of years in bottle.
Range: 89-91

Wine Spectator
Though lithe and marked by a vibrant structure, this is nicely integrated, featuring butterscotch, toast, vanilla, peach and lemon notes. Finishes with a chalky feel on the gums. Drink now through 2024.

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 steep, upcountry basin (referred to as a combe in French) in the southern end of the Côte de Beaune, St. Aubin is a direct westerly neighbor to Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. Recent years have seen a boom in white wine production so that now Chardonnay accounts for more than three quarters of area under vine here. Two thirds of St. Aubin is classified Premier Cru (30 total vineyards); most notable include Les Charmois, La Chatenière, En Remilly and Les Murgers Dents de Chie. The Premiers Crus of St. Aubin, wrapping like a ribbon upon the southeast and southwest facing slopes, produce fresh and elegant whites from Chardonnay. When young, these tout a refreshing grip and convey qualities of white flowers, citrus, pear, green almond and wet stone. Given some age, a graceful evolution occurs so that older St. Aubin whites express richer aromas of beeswax, honey, marzipan and spice.

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.
