Domaine Marc Colin Chassagne-Montrachet Cuvee Margot 2019  - First Bottle


91-93 Vinous -
The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Village "Margot", the name of this particular cuvée rather than the lieu-dit, comes from four parcels and is raised in 15% new oak. It has a well defined bouquet with orange pith and yellow plum aromas that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is full of energy with impressive depth, gorgeous orange zest and mandarin notes, almond and a little walnut. Very harmonious and very persistent on the finish, this punches well above its weight.
88-90 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
From parcels situated on the village's alluvial fan that ripen preciously and are among the first to be harvested, Colin's 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Cuvée Margot bursts with aromas of apples, fresh peaches, honeycomb and warm bread. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming, with lively acids underpinning its sun-kissed core of fruit, it has turned out nicely.

We LOVE this rich, refined Chassagne-Montrachet that sits adjacent to the Grand Cru of Batard-Montrachet! 2019 was a terrific, albeit low-yielding vintage, and the concentration, acidity, and the overall result are remarkable. This beauty is just coming around and certainly drinks like a much higher level (and price!) of White Burgundy.

This one’s for the aficionado who likes their White Burgundy on the more opulent, creamy, and complex side. Damien Colin has dialed back the use of new oak over the past few years (to just about 15% new for this wine), and is picking a bit earlier than in years great effect! The wines are just beautifully done, classy, balanced, and nicely taut. Richness, with freshness, and complemented with a zesty minerality...this is a glass simply impossible to put down!

This Chassagne-Montrachet is delineated as “Margot” – not a lieu dit, per say, but a blend of four different parcels within the village. Most of the wine is the family’s prized Les Enseignieres parcel, with smaller lots of their 1er Cru Vides-Bourses (which sits next to Enseignieres and ALSO touches Batard), as well as a dollop of the 1er Cru Champs-Gain, and the 1er Cru Chenevottes. (Margot is Caroline and Damien's grandmother's name). This is one of those wines that defy all expectations...if you read between the lines on the pro reviews, you’ll see that this is a wine that consistently “punches above its weight” – especially at our best-in-the-country price!

The wine is simply bursting with mandarin orange oil, smoky flint, nutmeg, and cardamom-spiced green apples, toasted hazelnuts, and perfumey acacia flowers, plus crisp Bartlett pear and delicate honeysuckle, just staggering complexity. This spreads out on your palate and lasts for a minute or more, easily. Epic, mind-rattling, wonderful stuff. Get some while we have it...just 20 cases!
