Domaine Marc Colin Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Cuvée 3C 2016

White Wine from France - Burgundy
0 star rating 0 Reviews
Fine and fresh to start before it develops lovely toasty aromas with aeration, this fine white Burgundy has a bright and fresh palate with good length. This is bottled with a Diam 30 cork so its worth decanting. 60-70% of the 2016 crop was lost to frost so Cuvée 3C combines Combes, Créots and Clos de Meix vineyards.

Domaine Marc Colin

Marc Colin, now a septuagenarian, has handed control of the 20 hectares of vineyards in his domaine to three of his children, Caroline, Joseph and Damien. Another son, Pierre-Yves, struck out on his own with his share of the vines.

The domaine embraces 30 different appellations, most of them white, within St Aubin, Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay. 70% of production is white, including several premier and grand cru wines right up to Le Montrachet itself.

The new generation have not rested on their father’s laurels and have taken the reputation of the wines to a new level. Sustainable viticulture is the order of the day, with many organic principles being followed though not certified and a great deal of care and attention being paid to the vineyard to ensure the highest quality fruit is harvested at lower yields than before. Batonnage is now eschewed in the winery, natural yeasts carry out the fermentation rather than the cultured versions of the past, and more new oak is employed in a newly built winery.

The results are plain to see in the improved quality of wines that were already renowned.
