Joseph Colin - Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 2018

$1,298.00

This “Chevalier-Montrachet” is complex, full of ripe orchard and tropical fruits, buttery popcorn and white spices. 

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. This climat is located in the Puligny-Montrachet municipality. It owes its name to the former lord of the village, who was known as the Chevalier (knight in English).

The Chevalier-Montrachet is an outlier for Joseph Colin, much riper and opulent compared to his other wines. The bouquet is complex, full of ripe orchard and tropical fruits, buttery popcorn and white spices. The palate is succulent showing a juicy opulence and subtle, smoky notes finishing with a wet stone salinity. 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.

"Coming Soon."

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.
