2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Enseignères, Domaine Marc Colin et Fils

This vineyard straddles the village boundary between Puligny and Chassagne and is well regarded as a top flight village parcel, with the likes of Coche Dury also producing a single vineyard cuvée from this site. Its position just beneath Bâtard Montrachet goes a long way in explaining its superior quality. This extraordinary village wine is stony, mineral, and vibrant in 2018, with wonderfully floral fruit and a fine-boned, silky length.

2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Enseignères, Domaine Marc Colin et Fils
Domaine Marc Colin et Fils

The southern end of the Côte de Beaune is not short of Colins. Domaine Marc Colin is run by Damien and Caroline Colin, siblings of Pierre Yves and Joseph, who have both established their own domaines. Damien and Caroline still retain the lion’s share of the original holdings, with a significant position across St Aubin, Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet. The wines are pure, well-made, characterful, and markedly reliable - a word not always applicable to white Burgundy. But year in, year out, Damien makes wines that show brilliant drive in their youth and age with elegance. He looks for freshness rather than richness in his wines, and has moved away from cultivating very low yields. The past few vintages have firmly established this as one of the top addresses in the Côte de Beaune.
