90-92 points


Michel Colin was the third generation in his family to grow grapes in Burgundy within the prestigious Côte de Beaune. When he retired in 2003, he handed the property over to his sons, Philippe and Bruno, who split the holdings between them to bottle under separate labels. With the help of his wife, Stéphanie, Bruno farms eight hectares of land, in thirty different parcels scattered over five communes, with sometimes as little as just a few rows per parcel. To farm under these circumstances is quintessentially Burgundian, where the old Napoleonic codes of inheritance (evolved from Roman law) divide property equally among offspring. Parcels farmed by any one family continue to get smaller and smaller as they are distributed among relatives.

Bruno’s style shows beautiful balance, both aromatically and texturally, while showcasing the delicate minerality and nuanced complexity of each vineyard. This is a robust and opulent wine. It is rich and concentrated with notes of spice, candied citrus, stone fruits, toasted almonds, and a floral touch. A precise, well-structured, savoury, and very delicate wine.

Pale lemon colour. The nose is a little bit more backward here, altogether tighter. A mix of lemons and yellow plums, actually not as powerful an example of Morgeot as sometimes, reflecting that these hotter vintages are lightening up this sector.
