2019 Joseph Colin Saint-Aubin En Remilly Premier Cru
Joseph Colin initially trained at Domaine Marc Colin, working alongside his brother, Pierre-Yves, to make the family wines. In 2016, Joseph decided to create his own Domaine, and, subsequently, inherited just over six hectares of vineyards from his family holdings, representing about nineteen different appellations, to start his exciting new venture. Keeping yields low, Joseph picks on the early side to retain an unmistakable purity and freshness in his wines. He likes the tension and vibrancy in his whites, and feels it is a signature of his output. Purity is a word that Joseph particularly associates with his wines, since he doesn't like heavy handed or reductive and oaky wines, but rather he allows the different terroirs to shine through truly in the glass. The wines display a tense and vibrant profile, championing minerality and finesse yet there is a comforting richness in the mid-palate.
Wafting from the glass with aromas of honeyed pear, white flowers and yellow orchard fruit, the 2019 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly is medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with an ample core of ripe, concentrated fruit, bight balancing acids and a long, mineral finish. Drink 2021 - 2035.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Saint-Aubin En Remilly 1er Cru offers scents of apple blossom, pear and grapefruit on the nose, touches of flint and chalk. The palate is well balanced with green apple, Conference pear and noticeable saline notes that dominate the Puligny-like finish. Stern, but I can imagine this partnering fruits de mer with style. Drink 2022 - 2030.
Neal Martin - Vinous
From two plots, Remilly itself on the plateau, which does not frost, and Les Cortons below. There was a decent crop in 2019 despite the comparative drought. 13.5%. Clear pale colour, the nose is quite restrained, with massive intensity on the palate, all in white fruit, not excessive, finishes very well.
