2019 Domaine Marc Colin St-Aubin 1er Cru "Sous Roches Dumay" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1526669 92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Saint-Aubin Sous Roches Dumay 1er Cru has a precise and focused bouquet, traces of oyster shell intermixed with yellow fruit, a hint of nectarine. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, more weight than En Créots with a spiciness that floods the mouth on its way out, ensuring that you will not forget it in a hurry. Very penetrating, this is a sublime Saint-Aubin. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Fresh and beautifully layered aromas offer up citrusy pear, apple and acacia blossom scents. The finer and more mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors possess an almost delicate mouthfeel while exhibiting fine length on the focused, chiseled and lingering finale. A lovely wine that combines punch and finesse. *Burghound Outstanding!* Inner quote mark (6/2021)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Sous Roche Dumay is another success, mingling aromas of pear, blanched almonds and citrus oil. Medium-bodied, bright and chiseled, with tangy acids and good depth at the core, it would be hard to guess that it comes from rather young vines. Damien Colin reported that his yields were some 30% below average and that the crop ripened rapidly, "even very rapidly." Indeed, having projected a September 15 start, he began picking on September 7. Alcohol levels came in for the most part between 13% and 13.5%, with good phenolic maturity and lower pHs than in 2018. Having learned from a succession of warm vintages, every effort was made to retain freshness: working with cool grapes, minimal bâtonnage and moderate percentages of new oak. And in the vineyards, Colin is backing off rognage, working more flexibly to adapt to the vintage. All this translates to a very fine vintage chez Colin, delivering wines that are more concentrated and more clearly defined by site than the charming, open and expressive 2018s, also revisited here.

Above Chatenière, ripens nicely, younger vines here also. Really strict and attractive in the mouth, will flesh out more as the wines gain more age, but very promising. Really good finish. Tasted: October 2020."
