"Lime blossom, hazelnut, peach, citronella and toasty oak combine in this alluring white. Seamless in balance, builds gracefully on the palate to a lingering finish. The aftertaste evokes floral, baking spice, pastry and ripe fruit accents. Drink now through 2028. 34 cases imported. -BS" (WS)

"The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet La Truffière 1er Cru has a detailed bouquet with granite, hazelnut and light sea spray aromas. The palate is saline on the entry, which gets the saliva flowing. Quite linear and precise, it has a detailed, lemongrass-tinged finish that gently fans out and lingers long on the aftertaste. Excellent. " (VM)

"Reduction and sulfur presently push what appear to be ripe fruit and floral aromas to the background. On the plus side there is a notably finer but less powerful mouthfeel to the intensely mineral-driven flavors that brim with dry extract on the citrus-tinged, balanced and sneaky long finish. I wouldn't describe this as classic, but I like the refinement plus it should age gracefully over the medium-term." (BH)

Winery Notes:
Having worked for many years with his family at the Domaine Michel Colin-Deleger and Fils, Bruno and his wife Stéphanie produced their first vintage in 2004. Today, the Domaine Bruno Colin consists of approximately 18 Acres located within the communes of Chassagne- Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin, Santenay and Maranges. In separating himself from the family Domaine, Bruno has realized his dream of trying different winemaking techniques. The Domaine vinifies each vintage rigorously by respecting the terroir of each parcel in order to allow the wine to present itself as perfectly and as naturally as possible. Bruno’s winemaking style is now affirmed – he makes wines of great precision and minerality-a lovely juxtaposition to the sometimes heavy classical wines of Chassagne-Montrachet.
