Domaine Marc Colin Saint-Aubin Premier Cru En Remilly 2016
White Wine from France - Burgundy
This fine white Burgundy has intense floral aromas to start, then a hint of honey. Firm and fine palate with excellent length. En Remilly is one of the best Saint-Aubin premiers crus and this was made from a tiny crop as 60-70% was lost in a severe frost. Bottled with a Diam 30 cork, this will improve with decanting.

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.
