Bruno Colin’s eight hectares of vineyards are divvied up among a staggering thirty individual parcels ranging across five different villages. What a headache! His entry-level red, a blend of fruit from Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay, combines a gentle fruitiness with a touch of rustic spice. It is fresh, elegant, and balanced, but most of all, it represents a screaming deal for top-quality red Burgundy that is completely ready for business!
|Vineyard:||32 years, .62 ha|
|Aging:||Raised in barrel for 12 months before bottling|
Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
