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....
A subtly kaleidoscopic nose offers a superb range of floral and spice elements that are too numerous to mention. There is outstanding volume to the concentrated full-bodied flavors that possess so much dry extract that the texture is borderline chewy on the massively persistent finish where again the only nit of import is a touch of warmth. This is class in a glass and a wine that should amply repay extended cellaring. This too is brilliant. Drink 2036+.
