Simon Colin Santenay Rouge 2021
"Few villages in the Cote de Beaune attract the level of attention as Chassagne-Montrachet where the fragmentation if the large family estates has been happening for quite some time, if your name is Colin, Morey or a variation of these names, there is a pretty good chance that you have amazing vineyards in the area.The “latest” addition to this line age is Simon Colin, he is the son of Philippe and nephew of Bruno, we’ll get back to why this is important below.
The Colin family tree started with Pierre Colin who had three sons:
– Andre Colin, whose son is Marc Colin: father of Pierre-Yves, Joseph, Damien and Caroline
– Louis Colin, whose son is Bernard Colin: who sold his estate to the Picard family, now vinified under the Domaine Au Pied du Mont Chauve
– Francois Colin, whose son is Michel Colin-Deleger: father of Bruno and Philippe
As it is well known, in Burgundy the Estates are split amongst the next generation and Simon’s time has come to get 2/3 of Philippe’s vineyards effective with the 2021 vintage and he will move into his father’s modern winery in the same area as people like PYCM, Niellon and the two Pillots. He should complete the acquisition of the rest of the vineyards, mostly Grand Crus and Premiers Crus in over the next 10 years." -Supplier notes
