2021 Domaine Marc Colin & Fils Puligny Montrachet Le Trézin
Some of the world's finest white wines are produced in Puligny-Montrachet. The most famous and probably the best of them all comes from the Le Montrachet field. This vineyard is located half in Puligny and half within the commune of Chassagne. In addition to Le Montrachet, Puligny also houses the Grands Cru Chevalier-Montrachet, Batard-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet. The wines from Puligny are particularly refined, with beautiful shades and a high degree of complexity.
The Puligny-Montrachet le Trezin has a pronounced brightness on the nose: fresh lime and Granny Smith apples and a little lime/mineral. The taste is very well balanced with great acidity. On the palate, the Trezin's siliceous (limestone, mineral) finish typical of this Premier Cru is very nice. Marc Colin is considered one of the best producers in Burgundy. Neal Martin's statement in the Wine Advocate is telling : "Okay, I'm going to say it. Shoot me if I'm wrong. Domaine Marc Colin are currently making some of the greatest whites in Burgundy
Marc Colin comes from a wine family in Burgundy with a strong reputation. Together with his two sons, he manages a domain of 20 hectares located in the village of Saint-Aubin in the Côte de Beaune.
Marc Colin's production
He exclusively owns top appellations: Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet, Premier Cru vineyards in Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin and Pernand-Vergelesses. This is very exceptional. This domaine is known for its quality, yet Colin sees an opportunity to continually improve this. That is why he is receiving increasingly favorable reviews in the international press. Colin's wines excel in purity and combine power with elegance. Perhaps a bit shy in their youth, but with enormous storage potential. Traditionally minded, he vinifies his wines with a remarkable intuition for nature. Although he is open to innovation, he sticks to a traditional style and strives for optimal freshness in his white wines and avoids the wood-dominated Chardonnay type. He is the most awarded winegrower from St-Aubin and owner of Restaurant Le Chassagne, which has 1 Michelin star.
