Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, January 2014

    Brilliant bright yellow in colour, this wine is finely balanced between its limey citrus fruit aromas and enticing orange peel and kiwi fruit flavours. A very classy wine with a lovely mouth coating finish.

    Score: 88-91

    An interesting nose of gun flint, pear and soft floral aromas introduces the very round, even lush medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent concentration. While the volume is impressive this isn't nearly as precise as it normally is though I do like the citrusy and dry finish. Drink 2014+

    Score: 17.5

    Fine, leesy texture. Pretty compact nose but loads of generous fruit on the palate, filled out with well-judged vanilla oak character. Satisfying, really zippy acid, great length. Drink 2014-2020

Producer

Domaine Michel Colin-Deleger

Michel Colin-Deléger is the third generation of his family to be involved in winemaking. Inheriting vines in the Chenevottes vineyard in 1987 from his uncle, Georges Deléger, he is now one of the best Chassagne-Montrachet producers. Having expanded, he has many more interests in the region, where he continues his careful winemaking, with his characteristic early bottling (to ensure acidity is retained and the freshness shows through). The common style amongst his complex wines is to have plenty of ripe fruit aromas on the nose and concentrated flavors. In 2005, Michel's sons Philippe and Bruno decided that they wanted to embark on their ownwinemaking ventures. The family divided up the 20-odd vineyard plots from which Colin-Déléger had been making exceptional wines for many years. Michel Colin kept only three - his favourites - which he will continue to work as long as he is physically possible. Keeping with the original Colin-Déléger style, his wines are ample and ripe with additional toastiness from his masterful use of oak barrels of which one-third are new. We are delighted to be the exclusive UK agents for this domaine. Michel is in so many ways a true hero of ours who consistently produces some of the most exciting wines in the world.

Chassagne-Montrachet

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.
