2014 Domaine Bruno Colin Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge Vieilles Vignes (Elsewhere $42)

SKU #1313555 Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Here the more deeply pitched nose offers up an attractively layered array of plum, violet and the hallmark pepper nuances. The sleek, delicious and detailed medium-bodied flavors possess slightly better depth on the mildly austere but solidly persistent finish.  (4/2016)

Wine Spectator

 Tightly wound and austere, with moderate cherry, earth and spice flavors. A firm edge of tannins lends support through the moderately long finish. Best from 2019 through 2027.  (2/2017)

The Bruno Colin wines were a huge hit off one of our email offerings this past month. Many of the offerings sold out, but there are few wines left. The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge “VV” is an absolutely delicious Pinot Noir that will be appreciated by fans of “classic” red burgundy. It shows wonderfully crunchy red cherry fruit, a bright, lively texture and hints of minerals and earth. This is great food wine and a pleasure to drink.

High-toned fruit, supple tannins, a backbone of acidity and minerality plus an incredible price point make this a fresh choice for daily drinking.

This is a beautiful Burgundy that is classic and under priced for the quality that this wine has. The nose in inviting and seductive with hints of the flavors that are to come. In the mouth it is elegant and balanced with a nice interaction of dry red fruits , earth and acid. This is Burgundy at its best.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
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.
Specific Appellation:

Chassagne Montrachet

- A long, wandering village in the Côte de Beaune. Fortunately, what the workaday village lacks in charm, the wines more than make up for. Most famous for its white wines, which are lovely and delicate, Chassagne-Montrachet actually produces more red than white wine. It is one of the few places in the Côte D'Or where both red and white wines are produced from Premier Cru vineyards. The Grands Crus are Montrachet, Bâtard Montrachet (both shared with the neighboring village of Puligny) and Criots Bâtard Montrachet.
