2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes, Domaine Philippe Colin

Less taut and tense than the Chaumées, but with a touch more concentration and intensity at this stage. There’s a broadness to the fruit here, with drive and definition on the finish, and mouthwatering freshness.

TASTING NOTES

The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Chenevottes has a classic Chassagne bouquet with wet limestone and chalky scents coming through, much more uninhibited than the other premier crus from Philippe Colin. The palate is fresh and slightly chalky on the entry, crisp and tensile with plenty of energy and tension towards the finish, this would be one of my picks from this grower who seems to be getting better year upon year.

Domaine Philippe Colin

Treading the line between tradition and modernity from his shiny winery on the outskirts of Chassagne-Montrachet bordering Puligny, Philippe Colin produces outstanding wine on his eleven and a half hectares. A quiet and thoughtful man, whose qualities are reflected in his elegant wines, the emphasis here is on subtlety rather than power.
