Isabelle Collotte's unusual white Marsannay, made from barrel-fermented Chardonnay is full of ripe, creamy nectarine, pinapple and vanilla. From one of Burgundy's most talented young winemakers.
Four generations of the Collotte family have lived and grown vines in Marsannay-la-Côte, the most northerly village of the Côte de Nuits. In 1981, Philippe Collotte - aged only 16 - was the first to bottle his own wines under the family name. Today, his talented daughter Isabelle runs this 17-hectare domaine having finished her studies at the prestigious wine school of Beaune.
Marsannay has a reputation for producing very attractive, generous and well-priced Pinot Noir and is the only Burgundy appellation that can also release white and rosé. Locally Domaine Collotte is regarded as a winery to watch.
