Marc Colin comes from a wine family in Burgundy with a solid reputation. Together with his two sons, he manages a 20 ha domain located in the village of Saint-Aubin in the Côte de Beaune. It owns only top appellations: Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet, Premier Cru vineyards in Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin and Pernand-Vergelesses. This is very exceptional. This domaine has traditionally been known for its quality, yet Colin sees an opportunity to improve it all the time. He is therefore 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 curious intuition for nature. Although he is open to innovation, he sticks to a traditional style and strives for optimal freshness in his white wines, for example, and avoids the wood-dominated type of Chardonnay. He is the most awarded winegrower in Gamay St-Aubin and owner of Restaurant Le Chassagne which has 1 Michelin star.

As usual, the Saint-Aubin Cuvée Luce is a blend of three lots that differ in age, exposure and soil type of the vine, making for a complementary cuvée. Revealing aromas of crisp pear, white flowers, honeysuckle and freshly baked bread, medium to full-bodied, ample and precise, with lively acidity and a chalky aftertaste. The Saint Aubin wines are highly recommended and Colin is without a doubt the absolute king. This promising Marc Colin Saint-Aubin is a nice introduction to the Colin range.
