On the Puligny side of the appellation, just above Chenevottes. Precise and elegant flavours that lean towards the fine citrus end of the spectrum. Very fluid, the shape and texture of this is just lovely as fine cream notes meet gently gripping extract. A most Puligny like Chassagne. No hard edges here, just sleekly propelled fruit.
This domaine that was borne out of Colin-Deleger when brothers Philippe and Bruno Colin decided to go their own ways in 2004. The core of the 11.5 hectare Philippe Colin estate lies in their holdings of Chassagne 1er Cru on Puligny side of the village, with some excellent St Aubin thrown into the mix for good measure. The style here is one of firm cores, and taut minerality with a layer of succulent surrounding fruit. Just a little bit of lees stirring is undertaken during elevage, oak influence is slight, and since 2011 bottling is done under a small wax plug and a capsule - belt and braces protection against oxidation. An excellent Chassagne Domaine that produces fine, seamless, moreish white burgundies. They boast great character but always suggest rather than insist.
