Wine With Bok - 9.25/10 stars 
Les Chaumees is situated at the edge of Chassagne-Montrachet, bordering the vineyards of Saint-Aubin, and directly above the 1er cru sites of Les Vergers and Les Chenevottes. Aged 12 months in French oak. Yearly production of only 4,200 bottles, to be distributed worldwide, thus you can imagine our very limited allocation. After tasting many vintages of Philippe Colin’s wines, I realized the winemaker does not make bold nor powerful wines, rather, all his wines were produced with very art craft, I have never tasted any overpowered wines from him before. The style is rather finesse and elegance, like this Les Chaumees, very pear taste driven with many shades of pear tastes, if you blind me, I swear it’s a pear juice with alcohol! (10/2022)


Wine & Spirits - 94 Points

Les Chaumées is the highest premier cru on the north end of Chassagne, including Colin's parcel where most of his vines are 50 years old, planted on shallow soils over limestone. His 2020 generated some controversy among our tasters, one finding the pear-like fruit too dominant, another finding the acidity out of balance, others, including this writer, attracted by the wine's gracious power. The acidity takes notes of honey and lemon butter and edges them with a radish-like buzz. The freshness of the bright lemon and pear flavors bodes well for long develop in bottle.


Allen Meadows Burghound - 92 Points

Moderate reduction is enough to overshadow the underlying fruit though there is both good freshness and vibrancy to the caressing but attractively punchy and textured flavors that possess solid concentration, all wrapped in a refreshingly dry finale. This could use better depth, but the potential appears to be present such that more can develop with a few years of bottle aging.
