2018 Domaine Marc Colin St-Aubin "Luce" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1483490 Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here too there is a hint of petrol on the ripe aromas of pear and apple compote. There is again very good intensity to the equally well-detailed if somewhat more voluminous flavors that flash a subtle minerality on the clean, dry and focused finale. This is a quality St. Aubin villages that could be enjoyed young or held for a few years first. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Offering up aromas of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers and toasted nuts, Colin's 2018 Saint-Aubin Cuvée Luce is medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and precise, with a caressing attack and a charming, expressive profile. This will drink well young. Damien Colin continues his progression towards longer élevage in larger vessels: In 2017, he purchased more 300- and 350-liter barrels, a trend that continued in 2018, and after a year in wood, his wines now see a protracted sojourn in tank on the lees. He's adding less sulfur dioxide at harvest, finding that fermentations last longer. And longer élevage with attendant natural clarification meant that he was able to bottle his 2017s entirely without fining or filtration. Those 2017s, revisited from bottle, confirmed their fine showing last year; and 2018, rounder and more immediate in style, looks to be another success for Domaine Marc Colin, as my notes testify.

K&L Notes

87-90 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "From 4 plots. Light lemon colour, but the nose is somewhat neutral, not as charming as the Bourgogne at first sniff. A little barrel toast perhaps. Then much more energy on the palate, surprising depth with rich white fruit flavours and some greener notes, long and with good acidity."
