Domaine Philippe Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Maltroie'
A wonderful set of wines here as ever from the Bourgogne Blanc right through to the Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet.
A wonderful set of wines here as ever from the Bourgogne Blanc right through to the Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet. Yields were down on 2018 10-20% (so a normal size vintage as 2018 was a monster). No hail or diseases during the growing season, and whilst carrying up to 13.8% natural alcohol when harvested there were high levels of tartaric acid too so this and no battonage has ensured a freshness in the wines. They have a lot of concentration and structure, but great vivacity, focus and definition. Emmanuel suggests 2019 has the “matier” and intensity of 2014 with more of the generosity of the warmer vintages, definitely “Grand Year”. Our tough choice was to decide which and how many of the glorious and still amazing value 1er Cru Chassagnes to include in our En Primeur offering.
"Philippe makes just five barrels from this famous vineyard, with its high clay percentage which always seems to translate in to opulence and depth. Pears, tarte tatin and a touch of gunflint and country butter on the nose. Palate is savoury with green herb notes and mandarin acidity. Less flamboyant than previous vintages, racier than usual and more elegant. This shows impressive restraint, all preserved lemons and green apples, and aa vibrant, long finish.
