Large swathes of Burgundy’s Côte d’Or are owned by branches of the extended Colin familyn and in Chassagne-Montrachet, Bruno Colin is the name to watch.

Bruno inherited his vineyards when his father, Michel Colin-Deléger’s estate was divided between him and his brother, Philippe. His first vintage was 2004 and he has succeeded brilliantly in building up an impressive domaine of his own. He vinifies his wines in both his father’s beautiful old cellars in the centre of Chassagne-Montrachet, and now, a brand new cellar opposite the church. He owns 8.75 hectares of vineyards spread across Puligny-Montrachet, St-Aubin, Santenay and Dezize-les-Maranges. His finest assets are the quality of his eight premier cru vineyards in Chassagne-Montrachet.

Bruno’s success is attributed to his ability to reflect the uniqueness of each vineyard, and his skill in creating expressive and alluring wines.

Tasting Notes

91-93 Points Allen Meadows
Once again there are petrol nuances lurking in the background of the spicy floral and essence of pear scents. The dense, indeed opulent and thick, medium-bodied flavors coat the palate with dry extract that also serves to buffer the firm acid spine shaping the impressively long and more complex finish. This is constructed to age, yet it is so inviting and refreshing that it should be approachable young too if desired.
