90-92 Points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Colin has elected to produce a 2017 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru CuvÃ©e Marguerite, a blend of the lieux-dits En CrÃ©ot, Les Combes and PerriÃ¨res that debuted after the 2016 frost. Exhibiting aromas of pear, fresh mint, white flowers and blanched almond, it's medium to full-bodied, bright and incisive, with tangy acids and a chalky finish. Pierre-Yves Colin described the 2017 vintage as "pure and transparent," with the wines nicely defined by their terroirs. They are, he adds, "more charming than I imagined-less 'cold' in style." Old vines, he says, produced notably more interesting musts than younger plantings, an observation borne out along the CÃ´te. Colin began picking early, on August 28, as usual privileging freshness; though I wonder if a successful experiment with picking his Corton-Charlemagne a little later than had been his habit suggests that the stylistic pendulum may be about to subtly swing at this address? In any case, he has produced a successful range, true to the strong house style, though showing comparatively little overt reduction when I visited after the harvest. As ever, no distinction is made on the labels between domaine and nÃ©gociant wines, and Colin is increasingly taking responsibility for farming the parcels from which he purchases fruit." 1/19
