En Primeur | Domaine Marc Colin 2019

Marc Colin retired many years ago, and his children, Pierre-Yves, Damien, Joseph, and Caroline ran this fabulous estate together for many years. In 2005 Pierre-Yves split away and formed his own domaine, followed by Joseph who branched off on his own in 2016. Whilst Joseph remains in the original cellars, Damien and Caroline relocated to a larger cuverie and cellar just down the road and still manage 12 hectares in total, across some truly excellent vineyards in St Aubin, Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet. The larger space and smaller volume mean they can rack and bottle the wines later, allowing them their desired 18 month élevage.

2019 represents the third vintage with Damien and Caroline at the helm. Their search for excellence continues as this fine range shows. Damien favours whole bunch pressing for his whites and fermentation in barrel. Sadly, the frosts and cold flowering season means 2019 is a particularly small crop for the domaine, down on average by 30% in comparison to 2018. However, he is delighted with the intensity and bright pristine freshness of his wines this year.

Please note: due to high demand, online purchases of 2019 Burgundies are limited to 1 case of each wine. For more information please contact your account manager or wine@goedhuis.com

    Cuvée Margot is named after Damien’s grandmother who was the source of his Le Montrachet vineyard. It is a blend of four different parcels in the village. With aromas of basil and lime, this is a vibrant Chassagne, with very good body and depth.

    The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Village "Margot", the name of this particular cuvée rather than the lieu-dit, comes from four parcels and is raised in 15% new oak. It has a well defined bouquet with orange pith and yellow plum aromas that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is full of energy with impressive depth, gorgeous orange zest and mandarin notes, almond and a little walnut. Very harmonious and very persistent on the finish, this punches well above its weight. 2022-2036

    From 4 plots. Pale lemon and lime colour, quite a tight white fruit nose, suddenly at the back of the mouth arrives an explosion of fruit, quite tropical, but still defined mostly by very ripe apple. Genial, but unexpected. The fruit stays long in the mouth. 4 stars

    Goedhuis, December 2020

    Les Castets is a stony south facing vineyard. The 2019 shows an intense mineral grip reflecting the influence of the soil. From relatively young vines, this is a bright energetic style, with a rewarding, racy finish.

    The 2019 Saint-Aubin Les Castets 1er Cru has an inviting and complex bouquet, a mélange of citrus lemon, lime, white chocolate and even a hint of praline. The palate is a little richer than expected and yet the weight is counterbalanced by the acidity. Just a little toastiness, almost sesame-like towards the long and vibrant finish. Very fine. 2022-2036

    Opening in the glass with hints of pear, pomelo, crisp green apples and fresh pastry, the 2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Castets is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and chiseled, with tangy acids and fine length on the finish. It's produced from a south-facing, stony site.

    Really energetic, rather grand and determined on the palate, there is serious depth here and lashings of freshness, too, making this a rather toothsome and challenging wine. Nicely appointed this is a clever creation for those wanting to dodge Chassagne prices.

    Damien feels that the soil in Castets is equally suited to red or white grapes. Pale colour, starts gently, then the white fruit fills out very nicely across the palate, even some tannins behind. An attractive, moderately fleshy St Aubin. 3 stars
