Philippe Colin Bourgogne Chardonnay, Burgundy, France, 2013
The Bourgogne Chardonnay is sourced from several vineyards located in Chassagne- Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. Vines are trained in the Single Guyot method, planted in soils of marl and calcareous clay and average 25 years old, ranging up to 40 years. They are farmed sustainably, following la lutte raisonnée (the practice of using less chemicals, less often, less aggressively than conventional growers), with rigorous plowing and minimal use of chemical sprays. Philippe Colin takes pride in providing the same care and attention in his Bourgogne vineyards as he does in his premier cru and grand cru sites.

Chassagne-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin, Burgundy, France
Bright and fresh with aromas and flavors of ripe fruit—particularly apple, citrus and faint melon—this easy drinking Chardonnay is beautifully balanced. It is exceptionally elegant, showing incredible potential for a wine in this category with a satisfying, lengthy finish that is tinged with vanilla and butterscotch nuances and supported by a solid mineral backbone.
