Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    Such a well positioned premier cru, sitting below Bâtard Montrachet. This is a very exuberant wine, with masses of cream, honey and fresh ripe apricots, all supported by a hint of toasted new oak. A full and concentrated wine, but the zesty acidity on the finish energises and refreshes the palate. Magnificent.

    Score: 90-92

    The 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Vide Bourse has the most composed and refined of the domaine's three Chassagne premier crus with delightful lemon curd, dried apricot and orange blossom scents that unfurl wonderfully. The palate is very well balanced with a crisp line of acidity, quite tensile in the mouth with touches of orange zest and even Seville orange mamalade toward the pretty and quite sustained finish. Very fine. Drink 2018-2030

  • BURG

    Burghound, June 2018,
    Score: 92

    Like several wines in the range, there is a whiff of exoticism to the white peach, lychee nut and rosemary oil-suffused nose. There is first-rate concentration to the broad-shouldered and lavishly proportioned flavors that possess a succulent mouth feel on the impressively complex and persistent finish. Like the Champs Gain, this is a bit finer than usual despite the excellent richness. Outstanding. Drink: 2023+

    Score: 92

    The Vide Bourse offers up a ripe, creamy nose of orange rind, yellow orchard fruit and preserved lemon. The wine is full-bodied and glossily textural, with sappy, racy acids and a good sense of energy. While this is a site which produces gourmand, rich wines, Colin’s rendition has plenty of energy and should develop very well in the cellar. Drink 2021-2035

Producer

Domaine Marc Colin

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.

Region

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.
