2019 St Aubin, Le Charmois, 1er Cru, Domaine Philippe Colin, Burgundy

Description

East-facing (opposite Les Combes), with plenty of limestone, Le Charmois is an excellent source of elegant, mineral Saint-Aubin. Raised in a quarter new oak barrels, this wine has an inviting toasty aroma and glossy rondeur to the attack before tightening up nicely, with zesty citrus and saline notes to the fore.

Drink 2023 to 2030

About this WINE

Domaine Philippe Colin

Domaine Philippe Colin

Philippe Colin has set himself up in modern premises in the industrial zone of Chassagne Montrachet with his share of the Colin-Deleger vineyards, which he has supplemented by some négociant cuvées. The label reflects a new-generation approach to his attractive wines. The Philippe Colin style is for elegance and subtlety rather than weight and power.

Chardonnay

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is the "Big Daddy" of white wine grapes and one of the most widely planted in the world. It is suited to a wide variety of soils, though it excels in soils with a high limestone content as found in Champagne, Chablis, and the Côte D`Or.

Burgundy is Chardonnay's spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvellous poise, elegance and balance. They are unquestionably the finest dry white wines in the world. Chardonnay plays a crucial role in the Champagne blend, providing structure and finesse, and is the sole grape in Blanc de Blancs.

It is quantitatively important in California and Australia, is widely planted in Chile and South Africa, and is the second most widely planted grape in New Zealand. In warm climates Chardonnay has a tendency to develop very high sugar levels during the final stages of ripening and this can occur at the expense of acidity. Late picking is a common problem and can result in blowsy and flabby wines that lack structure and definition.

Recently in the New World, we have seen a move towards more elegant, better- balanced and less oak-driven Chardonnays, and this is to be welcomed.

The 2019 Saint-Aubin La Charmois 1er Cru is steely and Puligny-like on the nose, sporting a light reduction that works to its favor. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, good weight with concentration loaded towards the back end that offers quince and dried pineapple notes. Good persistency here, this has potential, though it comes across strict and ”correct”.
