2019 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne Montrachet Vieilles Vignes
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.
The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes unwinds in the glass with scents of smoky pears and pear honey, framed by a subtle touch of reduction. Medium to full-bodied, round and fleshy, with a lively spine of acidity, it concludes with a mouthwateringly saline finish.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
From three plots on the Puligny side, in Les Houillères, the upper part of En Journoblot and Les Beuttes. Cheerful sunny nose, some spice too, then good fresh lemon scented fruit with more weight behind. Evenly balanced across the piece, albeit with less personality than the best of the St-Aubin 1ers crus.
