Founded in 1970 by Marc Colin and his wife Michele, Domaine Marc Colin now spans 15 hectares encompassing 26 appellations in St. Aubin, Chassagne, Puligny, and Santenay. Most of the land was inherited from past generations of the Colin and Ponavoy families; 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, En Remilly and Chatenière, to name a few. Today Joseph, Caroline, and Damien, the children of Marc and Michele, own and run the Domaine. Production consists of 70% white and 30% red with total production maxing out at 120,000 bottles.
Vides Bourses is a small vineyard located just below the Grand Cru Bâtard- Montrachet. It is located along a little lane near a slight rise between Puligny and Chassagne. Here bandits would lay in wait for unsuspecting travelers and rob the unfortunate ones - so Vide-Bourses translates to “empy pockets.” This is a well-respected 1er cru that in good years can rival grand cru wines, but at a fraction of the price.
