2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru En Remilly, Bruno Colin

En Remilly sits at the meeting point of three villages: Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, and St-Aubin. The larger part of it falls within St-Aubin, with the tiny part on the Chassagne side enjoying a superb position - next to Chevalier-Montrachet and just above Le Montrachet. It is a standout wine in Bruno’s cellar - so elegant and pure. The high elevation here, rocky soils, and old vines means yields are particularly low, and the wine is concentrated and explosive, with such tense precision.

2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru En Remilly, Bruno Colin
Domaine Bruno Colin

Chassagne-Montrachet is not short of Colins. Great swathes of it, and the surrounding villages of St-Aubin and Puligny-Montrachet, are owned by various branches of the family. Bruno is part of the Colin-Deléger side, and learned everything about making wine from his father, Michel, who is now retired (and whose domaine, Colin-Deléger, now no longer exists). Since inheriting his share of the family vineyards in 2003, Bruno has built up an impressive domaine of his own, vinifying the wines in his father’s beautiful old cellars in the centre of Chassagne-Montrachet. He excels in generous vintages, where he captures the opulence of bright sunshine with the fresh tension derived from his impressive terroirs. His wines are appealing, accessible and delicious, with plump stone fruit cores and racy freshness.
