Philippe Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Maltroie
Very ripe orange oil and lichee aromas are lifted by a floral note.
- Burgundy, France
Part of the famous Colin dynasty, Philippe set up his own domaine in 2004 and established himself in a brand new cuverie on the outskirts of the village, next door to Jean-Marc Pillot. Pierre-Yves Colin Morey and Michel Niellon have also recently relocated there and are his latest neighbours. As he has settled in to his new surroundings so the wines have moved up a gear and there is now an understated confidence that runs through the wines. New oak is well managed and the wines have good vitality to match their accessible fruit. His village Chassagne always runs out too early and we never have enough whilst his 1ers Crus are just getting better and better, combining a charming creaminess with a sense of place.
"(just two barrels made, one of them new): Very ripe orange oil and lichee aromas are lifted by a floral note. Fat and sweet but with a touch of phenolic bitterness. Sappier and firmer than the Saint-Aubin en Charmois but less harmonious in the early going. Finishes with pineapple and saline mineral notes and good length." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
