‘This is normally half barrel elevage but with the small volume in 21 it’s all barrel. That’s a pretty nose – with a good energy too – some florals start coming through with air. Supple, decently concentrated, modestly mineral – immodestly tasty with a nice citrus and mineral finish – yum!’ Bill Nanson, Burgundy Report, January 2023

The Collottes have been grape growers in Marsannay for four generations, but it wasn’t until 1981 that a young, 16 year-old Philippe Collotte bottled the first wine under the name of Domaine Collotte. In 2013 Philippe was joined by his daughter Isabelle (pictured above) who had just completed her viticulture and oenology studies at the Lycée Viticole de Beaune. Whilst Isabelle focusses particularly on the production of the domaine’s white wines, there is no doubt that her addition to the team has helped refine the quality of the wines across the board. One thing to remember is not to drink these wines too cold - they have great substance that builds further complexity with some air. This is a source of very attractively priced Burgundy!
