Domaine Michel Colin Deleger Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru En Remilly 2012
Chassagne 1er Cru en Remilly is always racy and taut. Its rocky soils give it a precocious minerality that gives precision and minerality to the full ripe fruit that results from southerly exposure to the sun, often with an herbal element of mint or thyme. Over time and aging well, en Remilly develops a slight nuttiness and earthy mushroom component that makes it a wonderful food wine.
As the nephew of the great Georges Deléger, Michel Colin inherited part of the Chevenottes vineyard, combining it with holdings from the Colin family’s domaine. Today, he is semi-retired. He cannot let go completely, thank goodness. He still farms a few, small parcels, three in fact: Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru En Remilly, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Demoiselles, and Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru.
