En Primeur | Domaine Bruno Colin 2019

The Colin family own swathes of the southern Côte de Beaune, with numerous impressive domaines run by cousins scattered across its finest villages. Bruno’s estate is spread across an impressive 30+ different parcels in Chassagne Montrachet, Puligny Montrachet and St Aubin. Since 2016 it has included additional Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru En Remilly and Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru, passed on to him by his retired father, Michel. Bruno grubbed up his tiny parcel of Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Desmoiselles in 2017, so this gem is currently off the list, but there is light at the end of the tunnel as the replanted vines gradually reach maturity.

Bruno is delighted with the 2019 vintage; they have great balance, and ripe but not excessively rich fruit. He describes them as both bright and intense, reflecting the superb conditions throughout the growing season. Fewer vineyard treatments were required than normal and the result was incredibly healthy fruit at harvest time.

Please note: due to high demand, online purchases of 2019 Burgundies are limited to 1 case of each wine. For more information please contact your account manager or wine@goedhuis.com

    This wine is a combination of two very old vineyard parcels, the oldest planted in 1952 and the more recent one planted 45 years ago in 1977! A touch of floral fruits and fresh cream aromatically. This wine has a feeling of layered texture, one can almost feel a sensation of earthy rusticity and then the sweet warming brioche sensation provides a moreish appeal on the finish. Lovely.

    Pale in colour, currently with a discreet nose, but impressive finesse on the palate without losing the more concentrated weight of the Morgeot sector. More in a white fruit style, lingering very well on the palate. 4 stars

    This is an exquisite example of Chassagne Montrachet from nine different lieux dits in the appellation. Bright pure citrus fruits, this has a mineral intensity balanced with flavours of honeysuckle and fresh cream. Very pure and very long.

    Pretty mid yellow, lighter nose, but there is a good tight concentration of fruit behind, and I like the balance with good tension, and a long finish. Well made, at a manageable 13.2% alcohol. 3 stars

    Located up on the hill towards St Aubin, Les Chaumées has sublime aromatics of camomile, jasmine and a touch of acacia honey. Very graceful as it flows through the palate and the touch of freshly baked baguette gives additional nuance on the finish.

    Light in colour with rather an elegant nose, a stylish Chaumées, quite delicately nuanced, a lighter, but fine style of Chassagne. Good length and persistence here. Very attractive. 3 stars

    La Maltroie is a Premier Cru that always makes an impact, characterised by its breadth and generous fruit. Initially more subtle than in some years, it unfurls into a glorious profusion of flavours. Fresh clotted cream and cracked hazelnuts. Intensity, layered, full and very long.

    Mid lemon and lime with a mix of fruit and barrel notes. This is a very good example of Maltroie because the fruit rapidly takes the upper hand, whereas this vineyard can be a little neutral. There is a light lemon touch here, from the balanced acidity. Decent length. 4 stars

    Morgeot is the largest Premier Cru in the Côte d’Or at 58 hectares, surpassing even Clos Vougeot (51 hectares). Unsurprisingly therefore, there is a huge variety of styles and quality levels, but Bruno’s always shines as one of the very best. Light lemon colour, this wine has an arresting mineral limestone freshness. It combines finesse with richness, layered flavours of lemon, mandarin and buttered croissant. Delicious.

    Tough and sinewy with concentrated fruit and a very long finish, this is a grand wine with a powerful stance and it will age well, too. More red-shaped in terms of its skin-derived ‘tannic’ grip on the finish, this is a macho, structure Chassagne and it will fall into balance within four years.

    Pale lemon colour. The nose is a little bit more backward here, altogether tighter. A mix of lemons and yellow plums, actually not as powerful an example of Morgeot as sometimes, reflecting that these hotter vintages are lightening up this sector. 3 stars

    Goedhuis, December 2020

    A relatively unknown Premier Cru towards St Aubin, Les Vergers always stands out in Bruno’s cellar. Always super-aromatic, the 2019 has a beguiling mix of basil, lime and Seville orange. Harmonious and sinuous, with a touch of hazelnut. The bright grapefruit lift on the finish gives focus and zip.

    This has not quite fallen clear yet. A little bit of toast appears in the bouquet, followed by more concentrated greener fruit. There is adequate concentration on the palate and correct oak balance, with decent length. 3 stars

    This Premier Cru vineyard borders Chassagne Montrachet and the vines have the deep-rooted structure of its more famous neighbour. Light straw colour, this is a very aromatic wine, with a mass of white peach and stone fruits. Harmonious, with the tight, earthy typicity one expects from these high-class vineyards.

    Lean pale yellow, with some tension to the nose. Fresh apples here and just a touch of confection. Pale yellow fruit to finish with agreeable length. 3 stars
