2019 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne Montrachet Morgeot Premier Cru

Burgundy, FRANCE
$365. 00 Bottle
$4380.00 Dozen
Closure: Cork

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....
The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot incorporates his holdings in the Abbaye de Morgeot as well as Les Fairendes—two lieux-dits that he has, in the past, bottled separately. Exhibiting aromas of pear, beeswax, freshly baked bread, toasted almonds and crushed mint, it's medium to full-bodied, elegantly muscular and incisive, with lively acids, fine concentration and a long, mineral finish.
