Domaine Philippe Colin Chassagne Montrachet Les Chaumees 2012
|Appellation||Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Domaine Philippe Colin|
Wine Spectator Though ripe, with honey and butter flavors on a creamy texture, this white is supported by a line of razor-sharp acidity. Long and subtle on the mouthwatering finish. Best from 2017 through 2024. 150 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgundy 2012 tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru les Chaumées has a lifted, perfumed and floral bouquet with scents of yellow flowers complementing the dried peach and vanilla scents, perhaps more Meursault-like in style. The palate is crisp and fresh with well-judged acidity, subtle notes of orange peel and pear, decent weight on the finish though not the greatest persistence. Even so, this is an enjoyable Chassagne-Montrachet, albeit one without the breeding of Colin's Chenevottes.
