Domaine Joseph Colin - Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "La Garenne" 2018

$245.00

The “La Garenne” presents a bright, silvery-gold hue that bounces out of the glass with grapefruit and lemon zest, green apple and iodine minerals, followed by hints of curry leaf spice and smoky oak.

Joseph Colin initially trained at Domaine Marc Colin, working alongside his brother, Pierre-Yves, to make the family wines. In 2016, Joseph decided to create his own Domaine, and, subsequently, inherited just over six hectares of vineyards from his family holding, representing about nineteen different appellations, to start his exciting new venture. The "La Garenne" comes from a 0.22-ha plot high up on the slope, in the hamlet of Blagny. The vines range from 30 to 90 years of age. While it ripens well, it always remains a "tonique" style, with slight citrus skin bitterness. The vintage makes little difference here – this plot is pretty much always like this – but it needs to be ripe, like "Vide Bourse."

The bouquet presents a bright, silvery-gold hue that bounces out of the glass with grapefruit and lemon zest, green apple and iodine minerals, followed by hints of curry leaf spice and smoky oak. The wine is electric on the palate providing a full spectrum of citrus fruit, from pith to the flesh, and some crunchy green apple. The finish is clean, defined by rocky minerality. It will perfectly pair with fine foods such as foie gras, caviar, oysters, crayfish, scallops and white fish. You can drink it now with a 30-minute decant before serving or cellar it up until 2028+. 100% Chardonnay.

Only healthy grapes make it to the press; the wines are also handled as little as possible, therefore there is no bâttonage, filtration or fining and no sulphur is used during the winemaking process until racking where minimal amounts are used. Fermentation and maceration is processed in 350-litre oak barrels for 12 months, before three months in stainless before bottling.
