Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge 2017
“A wild strawberry-stashed Chassagne, with magnificent, crunchy red fruit, plus a refined, tobacco-leaf finish.” – Jane Macquitty, The Times
Joseph Colin aims for crunchy reds and they’re wonderfully refreshing gently chilled straight out of the cellar. This sophisticated little number has autumnal notes of a fallen leaves in a forest, oven-baked plum crumble, red cherry, strawberry sorbet and tangy raspberries. It pairs perfectly with lighter meals, equally well with heavier meals such as Christmas dinner, when you really need something to cut through all that richness.
You know that this is a vintage you need to be all over when respected critics such as Allen Meadows say that “the 2017s deserve a place in your cellars”, and Neal Martin notes that the “2017 reds are very good, often excellent, and from time to time, bloody awesome.”
Saint Aubin used to be off the beaten track, but now it’s fast-becoming hot property in Burgundy. Here you’ll find Joseph Colin, son of Marc Colin who was one of the early pioneers in this area. In 2016 Joseph left the family business to branch out on his own, taking with him some plots in incredible locations including Chassagne-Montrachet. 2017 is his first full vintage and with a wealth of experience and confidence, he looks like one of Burgundy’s bright young sparks to watch. But don’t just take our word for it, Wine Advocate “encourage readers to acquaint themselves with his wines” too.£5.33 per 100.00ml
