Joseph Colin is the son of Marc Colin and the younger brother of Pierre-Yves Colin. After Pierre-Yves left in 2003 to start his now famous PYC, Joseph took over Domaine Marc Colin with his two younger siblings, who had worked with his father since 1993. In 2017, Joseph followed in his older brother's footsteps, taking 6+ hectares of the original family property and making his own wines here. The process of giving the eldest children some of the most beautiful vines in the world to find their own way in the wine world is a Burgundian tradition. In the case of the Colin family, the plots they received included some of the finest Chardonnay plots around St. Aubin, Puligny and Chassagne. Joseph started working full-time with his father at such a young age and knows the vines in this white Burgundian mecca better than anyone, meticulously tending each plot. He has a hands-off approach in the cellar, ferments with native yeast and matures all wines in 350L barrels on their fine lees until bottled in line with the style of his brother Pierre Yves and of course his father Marc Coline and mother Carloine Morey. The wines are all prime examples of this most sacred of Chardonnay terroirs, with an excitement and verve that is so sought after but so rarely found.

The Joseph Colin Bourgogne Aligoté is highly recommended. In terms of price, this is still very friendly for a Burgundy. Aligote is a cousin of Chardonnay, but typically more neutral. Aligoté is a white grape variety that results from a crossing of Pinot Blanc and Gouais Blanc. The Aligoté is, next to the Chardonnay, the 'other' white variety of Burgundy. The vines for the Colin come from 1946. In the glass, the aligoté has a pale straw yellow color with hints of green on the edge. Fresh notes of green apple, lemon, hazelnuts. The wine is medium bodied and has a pleasantly modest alcohol content, and so is the price for this Colin wine. Elegant and excellent price/quality for a white Burgundy.
