Marc Colin - Le Montrachet - Grand Cru

Indulge in the luxurious taste of Marc Colin's Le Montrachet Grand Cru, a wine that is sure to impress even the most discerning of palates. This wine is made from Chardonnay grapes grown in the prestigious Le Montrachet vineyard, which is located in the heart of Burgundy, France.

The wine has a complex taste profile that is both rich and elegant. It has a beautiful golden color and aromas of ripe fruit, honey, and toasted nuts. On the palate, it is full-bodied with a creamy texture and flavors of citrus, vanilla, and a hint of minerality. The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a lingering taste of toasted oak and vanilla.

Marc Colin is a renowned producer of Burgundy wines, with a history dating back to the 19th century. The family has been making wine for generations, and their expertise is evident in every bottle. The Le Montrachet Grand Cru is a testament to their commitment to quality and tradition.

This wine is perfect for special occasions or for those who appreciate the finer things in life. It pairs well with rich, creamy dishes such as lobster bisque or roasted chicken with truffle butter. Enjoy it in the company of good friends and family, or savor it on your own as you unwind after a long day.

There are 170 liters instead of 600 liters of the 2016 Montrachet Grand Cru this year due to the frost, raised in a specially made barrel to the exact size just like the Bâtard-Montrachet. It has a deeper and more intense bouquet compared to the Bâtard-Montrachet, with touches of oyster shell, sea cave and freshly tilled earth early in the morning. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, fresh and tensile, poised with hints of orange zest and apricot toward the long finish. Stylistically it reminds me of a Ramonet. What a fabulous Montrachet...shame there is bugger all to go round.

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.
