2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chaumées, Domaine Philippe Colin

Not to be confused with another Chassagne Premier Cru, Les Chaumes, Les Chaumées is situated high up the hill towards St-Aubin, and the paucity of soil here produces tense, linear wines. This fits the bill perfectly, with a chalky, stony texture, pure lemon fruit and persistence on the finish.

2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chaumées, Domaine Philippe Colin


The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chaumées has a generous, lightly honeyed bouquet, perhaps at the expense of the mineralité shown by the Saint Aubins at the moment. The palate is again, quite rounded on the entry, good weight in the mouth although it is missing the tension and energy that the 2014 demonstrated last year. It is well made, clean and pure, reflective of the vintage and should drink well for 5-8 years. I expect it to ultimately land at the upper end of my banded score.

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.
