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....
Moderate sulfur pushes the aromas of hazelnut and acacia blossom to the background at present. The rich, caressing and punchy flavors possess an appealing energy and brightness on the palate while exhibiting sneaky good length on the focused and linear finale where once again there is a trace of warmth. Drink 2025+.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

In this low-yielding vintage, Pierre-Yves Colin opted to produce a 2019 Meursault Village, blending fruit from Narvaux (which he often bottles as a lieu-dit cuvée) with grapes from Grands Charrons and Vireuils. This is a fine hillside cuvée, mingling aromas of crisp orchard fruit, praline and lemon oil with hints of dried white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, it's bright and chalky, concluding with a long finish.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)

A blend of 60% Narvaux, 20% Vireuils and 20% Grands Charrons – enough to make 12 barrels of 350l. Pierre-Yves chooses when to pick (10th September at 14%). I like the nose a lot here and it is very Meursault. I pick up a nibble of toastiness at the back. Full of flesh, and finishes very well through you can tell that there is some alcohol.
