Domaine Joseph Colin
The Colin family is revered throughout Burgundy's Côte de Beaune, with a storied history and penchant for crafting exceptional wines of distinction. Indeed, many of its members run prominent Domaines in Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. 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.
It is a blessing when a talented vigneron like Joseph Colin breaks free from family tradition to pursue a singular dream. It means that he isn't restrained to staid routine anymore and his talent can blossom naturally and without borders.
In the space of just two vintages, we are already witnessing Joseph's vision and ensuing accomplishments. Both unfolding truly in the vineyards and cellar. He is genuinely making some of the best wines in his region.
