Domaine Colin-Deléger is an estate that benefits from Michel Colin-Deléger mastering of his craft over the past few decades and producing wine that follows his exacting standards.
Michel Colin-Deléger created his eponymous winery in the renowned village of Chassagne-Montrachet in 1987. He has since forged an enviable reputation as one of the finest producers of this Burgundian appellation, crafting distinguished Premiers and Grand Crus wines that offer abundant ripe fruit aromas, concentrated flavors and layered complexity.
The En Remilly 1er Cru vineyard of Chassagne sits high above the Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet, on top of the Mont Rachet itself. With very stoney soils and a limestone bedrock, en Remilly has a nearly due southerly exposure to the sun. This exposure, excellent drainage, and the ability of the limestone bedrock to retain water supplies in drought conditions make en Remilly one of Chassagne Montrachet’s finest terroirs.
Although Michel’s sons, Philippe and Bruno, inherited the original Domaine Colin-Deléger vineyards, today Michel still actively oversees the production of wines from his three most prized vineyard sites – Chassagne Premier Cru “en Remilly,” the famous Puligny Premier Cru “Les Demoiselles,” and its neighboring Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet.
