Domaine Marc Colin et Fils
Domaine Marc Colin et Fils is a Burgundy wine estate based at Saint-Aubin in the Côte de Beaune, particularly known for its Chardonnay wines. It was created by Marc Colin and his wife Michèle in the 1970s from plots inherited from the Colin and Ponavoy families.
At the start, their holdings totalled 6 hectares (15 acres) in Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. Today the estate, run by three of the Colin's children, extends to 19ha (47 acres) over 26 appellations, including parcels in Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay. It had been larger but, in 2005, eldest son Pierre-Yves took his share of the vineyards to work separately.
Marc Colin's annual production totals around 120,000 bottles per year. Some 70 percent of this is white wine, ranging from Bourgogne Aligoté and Chardonnay through to Le Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet. The domaine also makes nine different white Saint-Aubin Premier Cru wines. Marc Colin also makes five red wines, headed by a Santenay Premier Cru La Comme.
