Domaine Philippe Colin Chassagne Montrachet Les Vergers 2015
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Domaine Philippe Colin|
The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers is one of Philippe's favourites this year. It was showing the most reduction from the five Chassagne premier crus that I tasted with Philippe Colin. Just traces of citrus fruit and a touch of flint. The palate is harmonious right from the start, rounded in the mouth albeit missing some acidity and race towards the finish. It just found the Maltoie and the Clos Saint-Jean display more tension at the moment, but let's see how it turns out in bottle.
