Domaine Marc Colin & Fils
About Domaine Marac Colin & Fils
Marc Colin created his Domaine in the 1970s, by taking back vineyards that had been in the Colin and Ponavoy families for more than a century, beginning with six hectares. During the 1980s and 1990s, he and his wife Michèle continued to expand the domaine across St Aubin, Chassagne, Puligny and Santenay until it reached 30 hectares. Since then, two of the four children, Pierre-Yves (of PYCM) and Joseph, have, at various stages, taken their share of the family vineyards and started their own businesses.
Today, Damien and Caroline run the family business with about 12 hectares across 26 appellations. From their immaculate cellar in St Aubin, Damien creates a superb range of wines that are both pristine and expressive. There are no special techniques, ‘just keep it simple’ is Damien’s mantra but when required, there is immaculate attention to detail. Rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the best white wine specialists in Burgundy, he has been called the Jean-Marc Roulot in Saint Aubin by Neal Martin
“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” - Neal Martin on Marc Colin
