Enter Bruno Colin’s pristine, sacrosanct cellar and you immediately sense that something precious, almost invaluable, dwells within those beautiful limestone walls. As a fourth-generation bourguignon and winemaker in this illustrious corner of the Côte de Beaune, Bruno has inherited the finely tuned, skillful craft of translating the world’s most prestigious terroirs into wines worthy of rave reviews. In my experience, Les Vergers can be lean in its youth, but it will flesh out in due time, blossoming into its full potential.
He bottles Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin, Santenay, and Maranges. In the old family winery in the center of the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, he vinifies over twenty cuvées separately, more than half of which are premier cru! He uses traditional vinification methods and ages his wines anywhere from twelve to eighteen months in barrel, though he tends to vinify each parcel in a similar fashion. Bruno’s style shows beautiful balance, both aromatically and texturally, while showcasing the delicate minerality and nuanced complexity of each vineyard.
