BRANDDomaine Marc Colin
Marc Colin comes from a wine family in Burgundy with a solid reputation. Together with his two sons, he manages a domain of 20 hectares located in the village of Saint-Aubin in the Côte de Beaune. It owns only top appellations: Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet, Premier Cru vineyards in Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin and Pernand-Vergelesses. This is very exceptional. This domaine has traditionally been known for its quality, yet Colin sees an opportunity to improve it. He is therefore receiving increasingly favorable reviews in the international press. Colins wines excel in purity and combine strength with elegance. Perhaps a little shy in their youth, but with huge storage potential.
Traditionally minded, he vinifies his wines with a curious intuition for nature. Although he is open to innovation, he sticks to a traditional style and, for example, strives for optimal freshness in his white wines and avoids the wood-dominated Chardonnay type. He is the most awarded winegrower from Gamay St-Aubin and owner of Restaurant Le Chassagne which has 1 Michelin star
The Domaine Marc Colin Saint-Aubin 1er Cru La Chatenière opens in the glass with scents of pear, fresh peach, orange and pastry cream. The 2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru La Chatenière is medium to full bodied, firm and concentrated, with an elegant textural attack, a layered core and fine length and grip on the finish.
