A hint of wood combines with fresh and ripe white orchard fruit, citrus and a hint of floral character. There is impressive richness and mid-palate concentration to the extract-rich middle weight flavors that coat the palate before terminating in an intense and attractively dry finish that delivers first-rate persistence and complexity for a villages level wine. This too is worth your interest. 2020+
The 2014 Puligny-Montrachet Le Trezin, a late ripening vineyard because of its altitude, has a well defined, engaging bouquet with a touch of flint and smoke lending it an almost Chablis-like personality. The palate is clean and fresh with a touch of fatness on the entry that is surprising. Driven by a keen line of acidity and plenty of spicy lemongrass notes on the finish, this Puligny punches above its village cru status. Drink 2018-2030
One of our favourite Burgundy estates, Domaine Marc Colin produces year-in and year-out, some of the most balanced, expressive wines in the Côte de Beaune. Their strict principles of using only natural yeast, having a slow, cool fermentation and little ‘débourbage' (draining the juice fromits sediment) contributes to their pure, fresh flavours and impeccable balance. The domaine is now run by brothers Pierre-Yves, Damien and Joseph who took over from their semi-retired father several years back. The "changing of the guard" has had little effect on the wines. The only notable difference is less stirring of the lees in order to retain the wines' mineral undertones. And as aresult, they are as delicious and sincere as ever.
Puligny Montrachet is known as the most delicate of the white wine appellations south of Beaune.Its wines tend to be linear and mineral offering delicate floral and orchard fruit aromatics. Its village and premier cru vineyard area total slightly over 200 hectares but almost half of them are premier cru making them one of the highest proportions of quality vineyards in the Côte de Beaune. Several grand cru vineyards are present, the most notable being Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachetwhich it shares with neighbouring Chassagne, but it does have the extraordinary Chevalier Montrachet and the tiny Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet all to itself. There are a handful of red wines grown, but they tend to be quite light and need to be drunk in their youth.
