Philippe Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru “Les Chaumees” 2017
“His viticultural practices are much like those of many Burgundians of his generation. His lutte raisonnée is truly reasoned, that is to say he works closely with the Chambre d´Agriculture de la Côte d´Or to reduce the number of treatments used. In a normal year he is down to six or seven, half of what his father would have used. Weedkillers are kept to minimum, only being applied in the those vineyards unsuitable for mechanization. Otherwise the soil is tilled to keep weeds at bay and grass cover is encouraged in some parcels where vigour is a problem, to encourage competition, regulate the yield and keep the risk of rot to a minimum.”
This Chassagne-Montrachet village is a standard in Burgundy, flaunting a pronounced minerality and appealing citrus, raw almond and green apple notes. Well balanced with a bright acidity, there is an underlying essence of butter on the fine, mineral cut finish.
