When Michel Colin semi-retired in 2004, he divided most of his estate between his two sons, Philippe and Bruno. Bruno’s 8 hectares span the Chassagne Montrachet appellation. Bruno’s style blends Burgundy’s tell-tale minerality with luxuriant fruit. In 2015 he has harnessed the richness of the vintage’s nature checked by bright freshness. Picking decisions were important in 2015, and Bruno was relatively early out of the blocks, meaning he maintained low pH and vibrant acidities in his wines. This complements the juicy stone fruit flavors and naturally chiseled nuttiness of Chassagne so well.
An archetypal village Chassagne. This has a lovely primary fruit character of white nectarine flesh with the charming lift of toasted hazelnuts and orange blossom on the nose. Precise and crisp on the palate. Drink 2017 – 2021.
