Marc Colin et Fils, Montrachet
The 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru remains under the "Domaine Marc Colin" label as Damien Colin’s father wished for it to remain linked with the name. There are just two barrels, a regular barrel and a specially made 200-litre barrel. It has a beautiful bouquet with Mirabelle, honeysuckle, orange blossom and crushed stone aromas. The 50% new oak is seamlessly integrated since it undergoes a 5-year toasting. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, taut and linear at the moment but very long. It is certainly tightly coiled but the elegance here cannot be denied even at this early stage. Superb. (DIAM closure). 2022-2050
95-97 points Nel Martin, Vinous
There are two-and-a-quarter barrels of the 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru, so Damien Colin supplemented a once-used barrel with a specially ordered one-and-a-quarter barrel for its élevage. Offering up aromas of citrus oil, white flowers, subtle spices, fresh pear and Meyer lemon, the wine is full-bodied, unctuous and seductive, with all the amplitude and mid-palate volume one expects of this grand cru, built around tangy acids and chewy structuring extract. Concentrated, satiny and penetrating, this is a superb Montrachet.
