2018 Domaine Marc Colin Chassagne-Montrachet "Cuvée Margot" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1483487 Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A whiff of post-bottling sulfur is present on the aromas of resin, petrol and pear liqueur so if you're going to try a bottle young, I would advise decanting this first. Otherwise there is fine richness to the bold and muscular flavors that also possess excellent volume, all wrapped in a complex, long and sappy finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. Once again, Colin has outperformed with his villages level wines. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (6/2020)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From parcels situated on the village's alluvial fan, Colin's 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Cuvée Margot reveals aromas of orange oil, mint and white flowers, but it's a bit marked by the impact of a new foudre from Tonnellerie Rousseau. The palate is medium to full-bodied and fleshy, but it's lacking a little definition this year. Damien Colin continues his progression towards longer élevage in larger vessels: In 2017, he purchased more 300- and 350-liter barrels, a trend that continued in 2018, and after a year in wood, his wines now see a protracted sojourn in tank on the lees. He's adding less sulfur dioxide at harvest, finding that fermentations last longer. And longer élevage with attendant natural clarification meant that he was able to bottle his 2017s entirely without fining or filtration. Those 2017s, revisited from bottle, confirmed their fine showing last year; and 2018, rounder and more immediate in style, looks to be another success for Domaine Marc Colin, as my notes testify.

K&L Notes

88-90 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Lovely pale primrose with a racy energy along with a perfumed ripeness, peachy and passion fruit but retains its balance on the palate – still; rather a soft sweet finish along these fruit lines. Actually it is rather lovely but not typical, and probably for earlier drinking."
