Michel Colin was the third generation in his family to grow grapes in Burgund’s prestigious Côte de Beaune. When he retired in 2003, he handed the property over to his sons, Philippe and Bruno, who split the holdings between them to bottle under separate labels. With the help of his wife, Stéphanie, Bruno farms eight hectares of land, in thirty different parcels scattered over five communes, with sometimes as little as just a few rows per parcel. To farm under these circumstances is quintessentially Burgundian, where the old Napoleonic codes of inheritance (evolved from Roman law) divide property equally among offspring. Parcels farmed by any one family continue to get smaller and smaller as they are distributed among relatives.
A gorgeous nose of various floral components, citrus, spice and wet stone introduces rich and voluminous medium-bodied flavors that possess outstanding intensity and detail. There is a wonderfully classy mouth feel to the saline-infused, persistent and striking complex finish that goes on and on. This should be terrific if allowed sufficient time.

Bruno Colin described 2011 as a "very good vintage with correct maturities. We began picking on the 1st of September and brought in clean fruit that required almost no sorting. Sugars were also correct and the fruit was easy to vinify. As to the wines, what I like the most is how clear the underlying terroir is and I would compare the style to a les austere version of 2010." I am in agreement with Colin's take on his wines in that they are correct and in line with the general quality of the vintage.
