Founded in 1970 by Marc Colin and wife Michele, Domaine Marc Colin now spans 15 ha encompassing 26 appellations in St. Aubin, Chassagne, Puligny, and Santenay. Most of the land was inherited; certain parcels have been in the family for more than 100 years. While the family does own prime territory in Chassagne, home base in St. Aubin features parcels of the very best vineyards in En Remilly and Chatenière. Today, Joseph, Caroline, and Damien, the children of Marc and Michele, own and run the domaine. The fourth sibling Pierre-Yves (who made the wine at Marc Colin for 10 years) established his own project in 2005. The grapes come from 2 plots: ‘Les Encégnières’ in Chassagne-Montrachet (2.3 ha), which is located directly under Grand Cru Bâtard and ‘Les Enceignières’ in Puligny-Montrachet (9.12 ha) which is located
directly under Grand Cru Bienvenue-Bâtard. Both are considered incredible sites with high active limestone content, from plants 25 to 40 years old. Thus, a blend of two lieux-dits but this easily punches at top 1er Cru weight.
