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

90-93 Points Allen Meadows
Pungent and layered aromas include those of petrol, lemon-lime, rosemary oil, poached pear and a floral top note. Here too there is excellent volume and intensity to the dense and sappy middle weight flavors that terminate in a compact, firm and built-to-age finish. This needs to develop better depth to merit the upper end of my projected range though this is just as well as it’s presently somewhat strict.
