Domaine Joseph Colin - Saint-Aubin "Compendium" 2018

$99.00

The “Compendium” is vibrant and intense with orange citrus dancing around a flinty, chalky scent.

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 holding, representing about nineteen different appellations, to start his exciting new venture. "Compendium" translates to "syntheses" in Latin, referring to the blend of seven of the appellation’s lieux-dits.

The bouquet is vibrant and intense with orange citrus dancing around a flinty, chalky scent that is amplified by white flowers and a touch of sea spray. The palate is well balanced and makes a lively entry, offering orange peel, Granny Smith apples and even a faint tang of liquorice. It can be paired with roast poultry, rich oysters, crayfish, scallops and white fish. You can drink it now with a 30-minute decant before serving or cellar it up until 2025+. 100% Chardonnay.

Only healthy grapes make it to the press; the wines are also handled as little as possible, therefore there is no bâttonage, filtration or fining and no sulphur is used during the winemaking process until racking where minimal amounts are used. Fermentation and maceration is processed in 350-litre oak barrels for 12 months, before three months in stainless before bottling.
