Bruno Colin Bourgogne Blanc 2018
Small plot with clay-limestone soils. The vines have been planted in 1981 and 2000. Bruno cultivates the vineyards using sustainable methods. The soils are worked and tilled mechanically and the harvests are done manually with selective sorting in the vineyards. The wine has been ageing for 10 months in oak barrels (with 10 to 20 % new oak).
Pure, clear hue with delicate green glimmers. Very fresh and direct on the nose with attractive aromas of white fruits. The palate is round with a pleasant minerality and a lively finish. A highly expressive, seductive and complete wine for its appellation.
About the winemaker
Following technical and commercial training at the Beaune Viticultural School, Bruno started to work with his parents and brother in 1993 at the family domaine Michel COLIN-DELEGER. In 2003, the mutual decision was taken to divide the family domaine into three separate entities : Domaine Michel COLIN-DELEGER, Domaine Philippe COLIN and Domaine Bruno COLIN. Bruno created his first vintage in 2004.
He strives to produce wines that offer a pure and simple expression of their terroirs. With 22 appellations including eight Premiers Crus Whites in Chassagne-Montrachet, Bruno seeks to reflect the unique personality of each terroir, all so close together yet all so different.
