2013 Domaine Bruno Colin Bourgogne Blanc (Elsewhere $30)

SKU #1312349 Allen Meadows - Burghound

 (raised in two-thirds stainless and the rest in cask, 50% of which was new) A pungent nose is composed of white and yellow orchard fruit with top notes of petrol and the barest hint of wood. There is an attractive mouth feel to the nicely intense and detailed flavors that possess average depth but solid persistence. This is already approachable but should be capable of repaying a few years of cellaring. Drink: 2017+  (6/2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Very fresh and confident and relaxed. Very racy. Much better than many producers’ village wines. Drink 2015 - 2020. (JR)  (11/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2013 Bourgogne is a Chardonnay coming from two parcels in Saint Aubin and Santenay that is already in bottle. It has a light honeysuckle-scented bouquet that is simple but nicely defined. The palate is balanced, quite fat in the mouth with a soft, pillowy, brioche-tinged finish. (NM)  (12/2014)

Wine Spectator

 A hint of vanilla joins the apple and lemon flavors in this racy white. Just a tad austere on the grapefruit-peel finish. Drink now through 2018. (BS)  (2/2016)

Wow, what a wine! I love Burgundy! All the way back to my to my sommelier days. Working the tables at some of the best restaurants in town. The customers would from time to time bring in some amazing Burgundies, which they would so graciously let me try. So, I got a little spoiled on my Burgundy palate. I knew I could never afford those bottles so I just moved on to other wines. But, lately there has been a little light at the end of the Burgundy tunnel. K&L is bringing in some amazing Burgundies. That can fit any budget! Bruno Colin is one of those producers that should not be missed. Take just the Bourgogne Blanc. What a delightful bottle. From the glass you can smell the sublime limestone and cirtus. On the palate, a balance of fruit, acidity and a heavier mouthfeel than one would think. Bright saline and apple finish. Just such a fabulous wine from beginning to end. This is just Bruno's entry-level wine! Wait til you explore the rest. With a price like this I think I will treat myself to a lobster roll.

Outstanding! With its sultry, soft texture, expressive notes of stone fruit and white flowers and such fetching acidity, this has to be the best value in white Burgundy that I've seen in some time.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
