Philippe Colin Bourgogne 2019 versus Jean Dauvissat Chablis 2018
9.0 stars
3 Aug 2021

I chose these two wines to have a head on clash as their status is almost the same, grapes picked from their surroundings. Philippe Colin sourced their Bourgogne from several vineyards located in Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. The handpicked grapes went through nautral fermentation in stainless steel tanks, then they used French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aged for 10 months. Frankly, this was impressive winemaking, as oak barrels are normally not applied to Bourgogne wines. A whiff and bouquet immediately revealed oak and butter toast. I enjoyed the balance of fruits and acidity of the wine, very harmonious. I suspect this is probably the best valued Bourgogne you can get. For Jean Dauvissat Chablis 2018, I have previously reported here: Jean Dauvissat Chablis 2018 – Fine Wines Singapore. Amongst the two wines, I gave no preference as each has it’s own beauty; with Philippe Colin’s Bourgogne going through a make-up (with oak) while Jean Dauvissat Chablis is of natural beauty (without the influence of oak).
