Composition

100% Pinot Noir. Fermented in stainless steel tanks. No malolactic fermentation. Aged on lees: 7 years.

Tasting Notes

Strawberry and cherries in brandy open the show. Elegant wild notes move in next with leather, pepper mint, cacao and candied orange peel. Thats when the vintage comes into its own.

The palate bursts with a surprising and slightly peaty taste with fruit brandy notes. Its deep flavour is enhanced by notes of chocolate and candied cherries which end on spices such as cinnamon and rhubarb. The uncompromising character of this wine makes it irresistible.

The perfect match for lobster, lamb tagine, game with cranberry, tuna sushi, brie with pink peppercorns, damson tart, Black Forest gateau and a cuban cigar.

Meet the Grower: Champagne Colin

Women pioneered the Colin Champagne vineyard, which is now run by brothers Richard and Romain Colin. The passion for vines and wine began with their grandmothers Geneviève Prieur and Marie Louise Radet who both inherited vines from their parents. But the family’s first winegrower dates back to 1829 with Constant Piéton, the great grandfather of Geneviève Prieur, Richard’s and Romain’s maternal grandmother.

Wine-making

The harvest, hand-picked when the grapes reach perfect maturity, is then taken to a traditional wooden Coquard press as well as a pneumatic press on the property. A few months in casks give the wines time to oxygenate slowly.

At Champagne Colin, the wines are aged on the lees for at least double the minimum time required and for more than 6 months after disgorgement. Each plot is vinified separately to allow each of our terroirs to fully express its character. Thanks to these traditional methods tending vines and crafting wines, Champagne Colin champagnes are marked by finesse and elegance, and typical of the Côte des Blancs’ greatest vineyards.

The Estate

Most of the 10-hectare estate is planted with Chardonnay – the king of grape varieties in the Blanc de blancs area of Champagne, France – in the prestigious Côte des Blancs in Vertus, Bergères-les-Vertus and Cuis, classified as Premier Cru Champagne and in the Grand Cru villages of Cramant and Oiry. Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are grown in the village of Sézanne. The rest of the vineyard lies further away in Venteuil in the Marne Valley and in Dormans.
