Domaine Philippe Colin Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Demoiselles'
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 a little down on a normal vintage, but it was the heat and water stress that really marked the vintage with particular effect on volumes from his Chaumee and En Remilly sites.
2020 was an outstanding vintage for Philippe and his team, that really took advantage of the unique conditions of the vintage to bring out opulence and purity of their fruit whilst maintaining a firm, taut minerality that is synonymous with the Domaine.
Tiny allocations here as just one barrel was produced. Very intense fruit, lemons, apples and stone fruit with a floral, nuttiness following up. There is so much power and intensity that you might think it was Grand Cru. This is ripe and rich but elegant and perfectly restrained. The saline chalkiness gives precision and balance. Very impressive. Nick Daniell, Club Wine Buyer
Philippe Colin’s own plot has been replanted (back in 2021) so at the moment his Demoiselles comes from a grape contract from another owner. Perfect pure lemon colour. A racily classic bouquet, Chevalier meets Montrachet. Production is just one new 450 litre barrel but apart from a little toast the wood scarcely shows. Elegance and power combined. Sturdy behind. Dancing at the back of the palate. Tasted: October 202193-96pts Jasper Morris
