2019 Joseph Colin Puligny-Montrachet Le Trezin
Joseph Colin initially trained at Domaine Marc Colin, working alongside his brother, Pierre-Yves, to make the family wines. In 2016, Joseph decided to create his own Domaine, and, subsequently, inherited just over six hectares of vineyards from his family holdings, representing about nineteen different appellations, to start his exciting new venture. Keeping yields low, Joseph picks on the early side to retain an unmistakable purity and freshness in his wines. He likes the tension and vibrancy in his whites, and feels it is a signature of his output. Purity is a word that Joseph particularly associates with his wines, since he doesn't like heavy handed or reductive and oaky wines, but rather he allows the different terroirs to shine through truly in the glass. The wines display a tense and vibrant profile, championing minerality and finesse yet there is a comforting richness in the mid-palate.
The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Le Trézin is lovely, wafting from the glass with notes of lemon, confit citrus, mint and blanched almonds. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, it's pillowy and elegant, with lively acids and a mineral finish. This is a pretty, fine-boned wine that comes warmly recommended. Drink 2020 - 2035.

The colour includes an attractive light green tint. Very floral, this is expressive in an extremely good way, leaner than I expected behind, but with some weight and character. White fruit to finish. Good length.
