2018 Domaine Marc Colin St-Aubin 1er Cru "En Montceau" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1483492 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark As usual, the 2018 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Montceau is showing superbly, exhibiting notes of citrus zest, crushed chalk, white flowers and freshly baked bread. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a satiny attack that segues into a racy, tensile core, concluding with a long and mineral finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Like the Charmois, the nose is presently dominated by residual sulfur though the underlying fruit does seem fresh and ripe. Otherwise there is almost painful intensity to the solidly dense and serious middle weight flavors that ooze minerality on the youthfully austere and beautifully chiseled finish. This excellent effort seems to be constructed from liquid rock and is really quite impressive. Note well though that in contrast to some of the prior wines, this is one that's going to need patience so buy accordingly. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (6/2020)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Saint-Aubin en Montceau 1er Cru has a more northerly exposure with less limestone but more marn soils, which tend to ripen later than the other cuvées. This feels much more primal and lacks the harmony of Colin’s other cuvées; perhaps it is going through an awkward stage in its barrel maturation. The palate is a little reduced at the moment but demonstrates fine weight and a slightly waxy texture, almost as if there was a splash of Aligoté on the finish. Not bad at all, but it’s difficult to see how it will develop once in bottle. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

92-94 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Pale primrose in colour. A nose to make you sit up and take notice with just a trace more noble reduction than the other St-Aubin 1ers Crus. Electric white fruit at the finish with a really pleasing citrus sorbet inflection, a more backward structure. This is a very fine St Aubin for cellaring."
