    Neal Martin, January 2019,
    Score: 95-97

    The 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru remains under the "Domaine Marc Colin" label as Damien Colin’s father wished for it to remain linked with the name. There are just two barrels, a regular barrel and a specially made 200-litre barrel. It has a beautiful bouquet with Mirabelle, honeysuckle, orange blossom and crushed stone aromas. The 50% new oak is seamlessly integrated since it undergoes a 5-year toasting. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, taut and linear at the moment but very long. It is certainly tightly coiled but the elegance here cannot be denied even at this early stage. Superb. (DIAM closure) 2022 - 2050

    Score: 96

    The equally restrained mineral reduction-inflected nose is comprised by green apple, honeysuckle and lavender aromas that are tinged with hints of wood spice. The impressively rich, powerful and intense flavors are not quite as concentrated as those of the Bâtard but the hugely long, compact and dazzlingly complex finish makes it abundantly clear that this is going to require extended cellaring in a cool cellar. In sum, this is a terrific Montrachet built for the long haul.

Producer

Domaine Marc Colin

One of our favourite Burgundy estates, Domaine Marc Colin produces year-in and year-out, some of the most balanced, expressive wines in the Côte de Beaune. Their strict principles of using only natural yeast, having a slow, cool fermentation and little ‘débourbage' (draining the juice fromits sediment) contributes to their pure, fresh flavours and impeccable balance. The domaine is now run by brothers Pierre-Yves, Damien and Joseph who took over from their semi-retired father several years back. The "changing of the guard" has had little effect on the wines. The only notable difference is less stirring of the lees in order to retain the wines' mineral undertones. And as aresult, they are as delicious and sincere as ever.

Region

Le Montrachet

Le Montrachet is the most famous white Burgundy Grand Cru coming from a single 8 hectare vineyard which overlaps into the communes of Puligny and Chassagne. Even as far back as the 18th century the wines of Le Montrachet had to be reserved a year in advance - a distant precursor to the en primeur system. The south east facing vineyards give the vines maximum exposure to the sun which combined with the limestone soil produces epic results.
