Domaine Philippe Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 'En Remilly'
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’s parcel of vines in the small section of En Remilly that is part of Chassagne rather than Saint Aubin is right next to Chevalier Montrachet and a grape’s throw from Montrachet itself. Even if ignorant of its location, the aristocratic, stony nose, with its great wave of briny minerals, is exhilarating and shouts class and distinction. This year adds salty butter, yellow apple and white plum to the aromas. The palate is particularly deft and energetic, ethereal, classy and cool." Tom Harrow, Wine Guru
"Glowing light green touch. Took over from parents in 2016/17 Philippe Colin’s En Remilly is clearly a more powerful wine than any of the other Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Crus. His plot is next to Chevalier-Montrachet, on the right, while Bruno Colin’s is higher up. It takes time to emerge, but the quality of the fruit on the palate is unmistakeable. Super energetic, powerful, but managing the season’s heat without difficulty, all white fruit, a little trace of barrel toast, but in the right proportion. Tasted: September 2020" 5 Stars, 93-96 pts, Jasper Morris MW
