PRODUCT INFORMATION

Philippe Colin’s heritage runs deeply in Chassagne-Montrachet, which inhabits only 300 residents. His father, Michel Colin-Deléger’s lineage traces back on both sides of the family to the 1850’s when their ancestors settled in the area. “I work a lot with terroir”, he says. “Each terroir, each plot, is very different. We have six-seven Chassagne-Montrachet premier crus in the family and it is very important to identify all of them. I’m always looking for terroirs we don’t have. A few years ago I made some Les Embrazées to see the difference in terroir. It is important to get to know all the terroirs in Chassagne-Montrachet.”

The 15 vineyards cultivated for this village wine are planted in limestone and calcareous clay soils with a high clay content, located just below the slopes of the Premier Cru vineyards of Chassagne-Montrachet. The vines range in age from 35-40 years old.

CRITIC REVIEWS
Robert Parker90/100

The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet is a lovely introduction to Colin's style, wafting from the glass with aromas of yellow orchard fruit, honeycomb and a subtle touch of praline. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and succulent, with a generous core of vibrant fruit and a nicely defined finish. This will offer a broad drinking window. William Kelley

DOMAINE PHILIPPE COLIN
Philippe Colin’s heritage runs deeply in Chassagne-Montrachet, which is situated in the Côte-d’Or and inhabits only 300 residents. His father, Michel Colin-Deléger’s lineage traces back on both sides of the family to the 1850s when their ancestors settled in the area. He inherited vineyards from both the Colins and his father-in-law, the esteemed Georges Deléger. Michel founded his winery, Domaine Michel Colin-Deléger, in 1987, garnering a reputation as one of the top estates in the region, producing renowned premier and grand cru wines. In 1988, after studying vititculture in Beaune, Philippe joined his parents in the family business working closely by their sides. During this time Philippe gained a plethora of knowledge from his father, sparking his passion for winemaking. In 2004 when Michel retired (keeping just three parcels for himself), Philippe and his brother Bruno decided to split the estate into two separate domaines in order to respect their different approaches to winemaking. Domaine Philippe Colin was founded in the same year. Philippe’s efforts were soon acknowledged, with the domaine gaining an abundance of international prestige and recognition. Domaine Philippe Colin’s holdings stretch approximately 30 acres with vineyards mainly in the Chassagne-Montrachet area but also in Santenay, Puligny- Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. He covers 24 appellations in total through his selections, which are classified as Bourgogne, Village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru. Philippe upholds the philosophy of respecting the vineyards, intervening as little as possible to allow the purest expression of terroir to shine through, as each plot is markedly different.
