- 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. 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.
Blended from the Domaine's parcels around Burgundy, including some in St. Aubin. The concentration this wine shows is excellent, with notes of citrus, almond and a saline freshness.
- "The 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet has a taut and chalky bouquet that shows more delineation than the 2012 last year. The palate is fresh on the entry. Here the oak lends a spiciness to the lightly honeyed fruit, but there is plenty of depth on the spicy finish to suggest that will repay a couple of year in bottle if you prefer." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
