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.

Fresh, ripe and citrusy aromas of white orchard confit and floral scents introduce dense and impressively powerful medium weight plus flavors that terminate in a serious, compact and muscular finish that is decidedly robust but not really particularly rustic. I suspect that this will come around moderately quickly and could be approachable after only a few years of bottle aging.
