Overview of the Wine
Philippe Colin’s heritage runs deeply in Chassagne-Montrachet, which is situated in the Côte-d’Or and inhabits only 300 residents. His father, Michel Colin-Deléger’s lineage traces back on both sides of the family to the 1850s when their ancestors settled in the area. He inherited vineyards from both the Colins and his father-in-law, the esteemed Georges Deléger. Michel founded his winery, Domaine Michel Colin-Deléger, in 1987, garnering a reputation as one of the top estates in the region, producing renowned premier and grand cru wines. In 1988, after studying vititculture in Beaune, Philippe joined his parents in the family business working closely by their sides. During this time Philippe gained a plethora of knowledge from his father, sparking his passion for winemaking. In 2004 when Michel retired (keeping just three parcels for himself), Philippe and his brother Bruno decided to split the estate into two separate domaines in order to respect their different approaches to winemaking. Domaine Philippe Colin was founded in the same year. Philippe’s efforts were soon acknowledged, with the domaine gaining an abundance of international prestige and recognition. Domaine Philippe Colin’s holdings stretch approximately 30 acres with vineyards mainly in the Chassagne-Montrachet area but also in Santenay, Puligny-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. He covers 24 appellations in total through his selections, which are classified as Bourgogne, Village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru. Philippe upholds the philosophy of respecting the vineyards, intervening as little as possible to allow the purest expression of terroir to shine through, as each plot is markedly different.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Luxurious with raspberry, blackcurrant and a hint of black pepper, the full-bodied palate of this Santenay lingers with fresh fruit on its finish. Its handsome and potent ruby-red hue reinforces the wine’s rich character.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast 
Decadent notes of rum and toasted coconut accent ripe, rich black-cherry and plum flavors in this wine. A blend of Pinot Noir from the En Boichot and Les Prarons Dessus vineyards located in the periphery of Santenay's Premier Cru site, the deeply concentrated red is framed by fine, silky tannins and bright acidity. Ready now, it should maintain peak through 2029. Anna Lee C. Iijima

90 Points - Wine Spectator

90 Points - Wine & Spirits
Concentrated with fragrant cherry-skin and pomegranate notes, along with the bitterness of stone-fruit pits, this wine has a plush texture encouraged by the chocolate richness of its time in oak. Round and satisfying now, this will develop more layers of flavor with a year or two of bottle age.
