This is a spin-off of Colin-Deleger, where Michel Colin divided most of his vineyard holdings between his two sons, Bruno and Philippe.

  • In vintage 2004: Bruno states that he follows most of his father's techniques except that “he may stir the the lees a bit longer in the spring.” [Ed Note by Don Cornwell–Colin-Deleger was already one of the estates with major problems in terms of premature oxidation and anecdotally was a relatively low S02 user as well as one of the longest lees stirrers in vintage 2000. So this statement is anything but a good sign in my view.]
  • In vintage 2005: M/L's completed in January-February, but stirred the lees until early May; free SO2 level increased to 40 ppm beginning this vintage
  • In vintage 2010: Currently bottling at 35 pmm free SO2.





  • Chassagne-Montrachet la Maltroie (November 2013) - Had this from magnum at a friends. Very nice wine. Not at all oxidized. Fairly young color for a 2004 (Howard Cooper)


  • Puligny-Montrachet La Truffieres (1st bottle 12/2009, 2nd bottle 01/2011): Purchased from reputable retailer in Vancouver. Both oxidised, 2nd undrinkable. [Peter Skarsgard]
  • Chassagne-Montrachet Les chaumèes (February 2011). Not oxidised. Very much in its juvenile phase. [Jorfra]
  • Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Morgeot (December 31, 2014). Purchased from reputable retailer and stored in wine fridge. Oxidized and undrinkable. [Jbeeby]
  • Chassagne-Montrachet En Remilly (June 2012): advanced but not fully oxidized [droch]
  • Puligny–Montrachet “La Truffière” (Jun. – Aug. 2019): 1 btl not oxidized + 1 btl oxidized. 14% ABV (!). The good bottle was yellow gold in color. Very lovely, but richer & fatter than in other vintages. A firm mineral backbone, however, keeps the richness in check on the palate. In this vintage, the style of this wine reminds me of his father Michel's PM “Les Demoiselles”. From a lot of 2 purchased in Jan. 2018 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer.

  • Puligny–Montrachet “La Truffière” (2013 – 2015): 6 btls not oxidized. A magnificent 21st century white Burgundy with old–school aromatics & flavors. From a half–case purchased in 2011 from the domaine's West Coast importer Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant. [Rayner Cheung]
  • Chassange-Montrachet Les Vergers (April 2015): Case from reputable retailer and stored in walk-in cellar at 55-57o since purchased. First bottle was fully oxidized and undrinkable. Second bottle shows advanced oxidation but still drinkable.


  • Chassagne–Montrachet “Les Vergers” (Sep. 2017 – ): 11 btls not oxidized. Lovely nose of delicate orchard fruits complicated by earthy minerality. Comparatively sweet & fat on the palate by 21st century white Burgundy standards. Decanting optional. From a case purchased in 2011 from the domaine's West Coast importer Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant. [Rayner Cheung]
  • Chassagne–Montrachet “Blanchot Dessus” (Nov. 2017 – ): 4 btls not oxidized. Delicate perfume of white flowers. Leaner & less developed on the palate than the Les Vergers. No rush to drink. Best served decanted. From a half–case purchased in 2011 from the domaine's West Coast importer Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant. [Rayner Cheung]
  • Puligny–Montrachet “La Truffière” (Apr. 2018 – ): 3 btls not oxidized. Orange flower & a touch of flint in the nose. Youthful on the palate like the Blanchot Dessus, but richer & more complex. No rush to drink. Best served decanted. From a half–case purchased in 2011 from the domaine's West Coast importer Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant. [Rayner Cheung]


  • Chassagne-Montrachet Blanchot Dessus (December 2016): Not oxized [C. Jang]
  • Puligny-Montrachet La Truffieres (November 2015): young to mature; not oxidized [Howard Cooper]
