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.

Other Reviews....
From four parcels—in Meursault, Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet—in the Côte de Beaune, the Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey 2019 Bourgogne Chardonnay delivers inviting aromas of fresh pear, peach and white flowers. Richer and more generous than this year's crisper, racier Bourgogne Aligoté, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming, with a bright spine of acidity and a nicely defined finish.

Four parcels in 10% Chassagne, 10% Puligny, 40% Meursault and 40% St-Aubin. 15% new oak. Tank sample.
Still very slightly cloudy. Ripe grapefruit nose and excellent tension. Real impact on the palate with a little bit of spice. Complete and quite long. A very superior Bourgogne.
