    Goedhuis, December 2019

    As with many great wines, this was a little reserved initially and then the drive of layered complexity evolves, showing off creamy flavours and hints of roasted chestnut. A wine of intense concentration with an almost tannic grip. This is a style for the longer term. High class.

    The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Champs Gain 1er Cru, which comes from vines located toward the bottom of the slope and high in calcaire, has an intense bouquet with scents of citrus lemon, crushed pebbles and suggestions of marmalade and wax resin, all very focused. The well-balanced palate delivers a gorgeous opening of blood orange and quince. Very complex, with outstanding mineralité toward the compelling finish. This is a stunning Chassagne-Montrachet from Damien Colin. Highly recommended. 2022 - 2045

    The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs Gain is showing nicely, exhibiting notions of white currant, fresh peach, almond paste and ripe citrus. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, open-knit but incisive, with good underlying tension and a mouthwatering finish. I suspect it will come together further with additional élevage.

    Fine attractive pale lemon and lime. There is some delicacy along with the muscle, a reductive note on the palate, a little extra flesh at the back before being brought back to a controlled lime-infused finish.

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.
