- Other Info:
- 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. The Philippe Colin style is for elegance and subtlety rather than weight and power. 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.
Absolutely gorgeous Chassagne. It displays an amazingly complex nose filled with aromas of lemon, honey and toasted hazelnut. Voluptuous on the palate with superb balance between oak, acidity and fruit flavour. An absolute diamond of a wine.
- "Rich and assertive on the palate, it is concentrated and compact, showing power and vibrancy. Oaky yet mineral, pungent and long" - DECANTER Magazine
