Wine Down Wednesday 2018 Marc Colin Saint-Aubin En Remilly “Premier Cru”
Written by, Miss Maggie
The spoiling continues with the 2018 Marc Colin Saint-Aubin En Remilly Premier Cru white Burgundy . On Friday, I indulged in this fabulous white Burgundy. Saint-Aubin is a village in the Cote de Beaune sub region of Burgundy. While not the most famous of the Cote d’Or villages, Saint Aubin is one of Burgundy’s top performing communes in vineyard quality, as nearly three quarters of its sites have premier cru status. (Might want to read that sentence again)! 87% of the wine in the village are white, and exemplify chardonnay at its finest. The Saint-Aubin appellation was officially introduced in 1937, and the premier crus designated in 1977, three years before its more prestigious neighbors to the east. Domaine Marc Colin, www.marc-colin.com started in the 1970’s and they now have vineyard sites in 9 of the Premier crus. Many writers and wine enthusiasts consider him the best producer in the commune. The wine sees 20 percent oak aging and is so well integrated that the vineyard expression is what stands out, the broadness of the En Remilly terroir.
When white burgundies achieve a sophistication of nuances, elegance, and complexity, they reach a true expression of flavors that are world class. And let me tell you, this fabulous wine “nailed it.” Packed with flavor, extreme length, and full of finesse, and sensuality, hmmm reminds me of a cute dog, a lemony aspect combines with a slight mushroomy, earthy tone.
I was lucky enough to get some fresh Pacific Salmon and served this Colin Saint-Aubin with a coconut curry sauce. I skipped the bonnet peppers and added a bit more curry flavor. Check out the recipe here! https://www.foodandwine.com/coconut-curry-salmon-7508750
