“This is not just one of the top Domaines in the Cote de Beaune in Burgundy, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey is now well recognised as one of the greatest winemakers and Domaines in the world. Consistently producing benchmark wines in each vintage.”

Established as one of the young rising stars of Burgundy, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey in 2005 left his family Domaine, Marc Colin, where he gained a solid reputation for his outstanding white wines. Pierre-Yves took control of a share of the family vineyards (Domaine Marc Colin) from the 2006 vintage. His first vintages have been made from vineyards and growers that he works closely with buying the wine as a must and aging the wines in barrels that he has supplied. If the resulting wines meet his standards the barrels of wine purchased are then matured in his own cold cellar below his house in Chassagne Montrachet. The white wines are a whole bunch pressed, fermented with natural yeasts, and aged on lees for up to 18 months mostly in 350-litre barrels with no lees stirring and no filtration. The corks used to come from one tiny supplier and are extra long and extra wide (55mm x 25mm) for the village, 1er cru, and Grand cru wines and are untreated with no paraffin and the bottles are then sealed with soft wax to ensure no problems with premox. The resulting wines are built to age classically up to 10 years or more.

A slightly cooler and less expressive nose highlights more floral-suffused aromas of lemon and green apple. The sleek, intense, and stony medium-weight flavours also possess better-than-average depth on the chalky and mildly austere finale. This too is worth considering.

Tasting Profile

Located in the lieu-dit of En Creuzilly at a height of 420 metres with ‘more clay’. A very fresh wine with less ‘fat’ that wants time to show its best. Ample depth covering a very fine structure. Vines in the direction of Nolay, bought in 2014 – 2015 were the first vintage – from an 8 ha Domaine shared with Sauzet – about 6km from Domaine, vines on hillsides, over 400m with plenty of clay in this soil. Harvested about a week later than the vines around Chassagne – patience is always needed. ”A little more open with a more overt yellow citrus. Vibrant, more chiselled, with more mineral energy – really juicy. That’s another great wine” burgundy-report.com December 2021
