Marc Colin founded this small domaine in the late 1970's in Chassagne-Montrachet and todays specializes in this great village for white wines as well as in Saint-Aubin. Today, three of his children, Caroline, Joseph and Damien, work at and run the domaine. The press has given great praise for recent vintages, including this quote from Neal Martin at Wine Advocate: 'This is a knockout range of wines from Marc Colin. There is just an honesty, a deceptive simplicity to them because on the surface they are so delicious, yet underneath are some articulate expressions of terroir, stunning mineralité and hidden complexity that tends to become clearer with aeration. I have heaped praise upon Domaine Marc Colin in previous years. This is no different. Domaine Marc Colin is one of the best growers in the Côte de Beaune, perhaps to Saint Aubin what Jean-Marc Roulot is to Meursault. And you can quote me on that.'

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Saint Aubin 1er Cru Sous Roche Dumay has a beguiling nose of almond, hazelnut, citrus peel and saline scents that really make a deep impression. How can you not like this? The palate does not quite match up to the promise of the aromatics with its lightly honeyed entry and saline finish. It falls short of the mineralité to merit a higher score but it is still very well crafted.
