2019 Domaine Marc Colin St-Aubin 1er Cru "Les Charmois" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1526672 92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Saint-Aubin Le Charmois 1er Cru has a very clean and precise bouquet not a million miles away from the Les Combes in style. Very terroir expressive. The palate is well balanced with an effervescent and lively opening of orange zest and blood orange. Superb acidity here, very vivid and nervous on the finish. One of the most intellectual of Colin’s Saint-Aubins this vintage. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here the expressive nose reflects subtle notes of the exotic with its array of both white and yellow fruit aromas that include white peach, apricot and passion fruit along with pretty floral wisps. The sleek, intense and nicely voluminous flavors are also relatively refined with a subtle bead of minerality adding lift on the balanced and highly persistent finish. Worth considering. *Burghound Outstanding Top Value!* Inner quote mark (6/2021)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Le Charmois displays aromas of orange oil, pear, freshly baked bread and beeswax. Medium to full-bodied, layered and bright, it marries ripe, sun-kissed fruit with tangy acids in a very vintage-typical mélange. As readers may remember, this derives from an easterly exposed site planted in 1982. 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.

Tighter, more length, touch of liquorice, heading into Chassagne territory. A little barrel comes up behind, but this is attractive and accessible. Tasted: October 2020. '
