Order wines of Domaine Marc Colin
Founded in 1970 by Marc Colin and his wife Michèle, Domaine Marc Colin & Fils today covers 15 hectares, grouping 26 appellations in St. Aubin, Chassagne, Puligny and Santenay. Most of the land was inherited from previous generations of Colin and Ponavoy; some plots have been in the family for over 100 years.
How are the wines of Domaine Marc Colin?
Organic and sustainable agriculture, old vines and clay-limestone soils are just some of the elements that contribute to the quality of the final product. The winemaking style would be better called traditional, although Joseph (who makes the whites) and Damien (who makes the reds) are certainly not shy of innovation. The whites strive for optimum freshness; there is no heavy, unsightly wood here. The reds are characterized by a silky texture, omnipresent fruit and a certain roundness with just a hint of oak. Initially, their cultivation totalled 6 hectares in Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. Today, the estate, managed by three of Colin's children, extends over 19 hectares, spread over 19 appellations, including plots in Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay. It used to be bigger, but in 2005, the eldest son Pierre-Yves took over his share of the vineyard to work separately.
Marc Colin's annual production is around 120,000 bottles per year. About 70% of this is white wine, ranging from Bourgogne Aligoté and Chardonnay to Le Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet. The estate also produces nine different Saint-Aubin white wines Premier Cru. Marc Colin also produces five red wines, led by a Premier Cru La Comme de Santena.
