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 lineage is Simon Colin, he is the son of Philippe and nephew of Bruno.
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. His experience as a Vigneron is quite impressive at his young age as he has trained at his uncle Bruno where he got his feet wet but has also been the assistant winemaker at Domaine Etienne Sauzet through the 2020 Harvest.
