Philippe Colin’s heritage runs deeply in Chassagne Montrachet. He grew up, with his brother Bruno, in the middle of vineyards as their father was also a well known wine producer. This is where he gained an extensive knowledge, sparking his passion for qualitative winemaking. When their father retired, Philippe and Bruno decided to split up the estate into 2 seperate domaines in order to respect their different wine making approaches. So, in 2004, the Domaine Philippe Colin was created and since then keeps on growing (12 hectares). Now, he has 24 appellations in total (60% white wines and 40% red wines) from Bourgogne, village and grands crus appellations. Philippe’s philosophy is to intervene as little as possible to allow purest expression of Terroirs as each plots can be so different.

Handpick grapes during the harvest when maturity is there and depending on the weather conditions and yields. Philippe uses pneumatic press for slow and soft extraction of the juice. For red wines, grapes are 100% destemmed and undergo a cold soak. Vinfication takes place in temperature controlled tanks to control alcoholic fermentation. Philippe is one of the first wine producers to use big barrels (450 / 500 liters) to age white wines in order to limit the influence of wood which makes this producer so unique!
