A very distinctive and more complex lieu-dit within Morgeot. This is a wonderfully full-bodied wine that shows great intensity and concentration while remaining balanced and harmonious. With flavours of warm toffee and freshly cracked hazelnuts, this is multi-layered and has great depth of flavour.
A slightly more elegant nose is comprised by notes of essence of spiced pear that are laced with floral and barely perceptible resin hints. The medium-bodied flavors are also exceptionally rich though perhaps just a bit finer, all wrapped in a caressing, palate coating and lingering finish that flashes focused power. This isn't a wine of refinement though it is finer than the Morgeot. Drink 2025+
Bruno’s estate is spread across an impressive 30+ different parcels in Chassagne Montrachet, Puligny Montrachet and St Aubin. From 2016 onwards, his portfolio includes Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Desmoiselles and Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru, passed down to him by his father, Michel, who has stepped into retirement (Michel Colin-Deleger’s estate was divided between his two sons, Bruno and Philippe). Bruno’s style blends Burgundy's tell-tale minerality with luxuriant fruit. The wines tend to display generous concentration with vibrant drive. Many have the potential to age beautifully but Bruno’s wines are also notable for their open approachability in youth. His wide range of Chassagne Montrachet premiers crus captures the diverse expression of the appellation.
The white wines of Chassagne Montrachet can be difficult to distinguish from Puligny. At their most typical they are slightly fleshier and more hedonistic, but are often just as mineral and refined making the two almost inseparable. When distinguishable, they offer notes of honeysuckle, lime blossom and honey. Many have become quite approachable when young. It is larger than Puligny with vineyards totalling over 330 hectares. Though it shares both the grand cru vineyards of Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachet, it has sole ownership of the miniscule Criots Bâtard Montrachet. Similar to Puligny, Chassagne also grows Pinot Noir, which can be austere when young. A small amount of red Chassagne is also made.
