Four generations of the Collotte family have lived and grown vines in Marsannay-la-Côte, the most northerly village of the Côte de Nuits. In 1981, Philippe Collotte - aged only 16 - was the first to bottle his own wines under the family name. Today, his talented daughter Isabelle runs this 17-hectare domaine having finished her studies at the prestigious wine school of Beaune.
Marsannay has a reputation for producing very attractive, generous and well-priced Pinot Noir and is the only Burgundy appellation that can also release white and rosé. Locally Domaine Collotte is regarded as a winery to watch.
