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.

This Joseph Colin OSA Saint Aubin Premier Cru is a blend of vineyards from Sentier du Clou, Combes, Roches Dumay, En Vermarain, all of which were too small to be made individually. Light straw yellow in the glass, the nose still somewhat closed in its younger years and could certainly use some time, otherwise it could certainly be decanted in its younger years. The wine is intense, lively, tight with various citrus fruits, including a bit of orange peel, which with time reveals white spring flowers and a small hint of brioche. A very nice Saint Aubin, but anyway, this comes from Marc Colin's son.
