2018 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Meursault
After leaving his family domaine in 2005, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey has established himself as one of the rising stars of Burgundy. Pierre-Yves has built a strong reputation for crafting exquisite white Burgundy that display energy and vitality. The white wines are whole bunch pressed, fermented with natural yeasts, aged on lees for up to 18 months in mostly in 350 litre barrels with no lees stirring and no filtration. The corks used 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 premature oxidation. The resulting wines are built to age classically up to 10 years or more.
From vines planted 1970’s located quite high on the slope on the Puligny side of Meursault. In 2018 this is from 90% Narvaux and 10% Les Vireuils.
Broader and riper fruit character compared with the Garenne. Dusty lemon and lime, with clementine and a touch of cedar. Stony dustiness balances the generous fruit. Creamy, smooth, tight and long, rounded in that creamy character.

This comes from the lower part of the vineyard, just above Genevrières.Pale colour with a light green streak. This has more substance and a touch of oak showing. Holds up really well after tasting the Chassagne and Puligny 1ers crus, it has more body yet also refinement, glossy white fruit, covering the acidity.
