2019 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Saint Aubin Hommage a Marguerite Premier Cru
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 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Hommage à Marguerite is also showing nicely, mingling hints of citrus zest and crisp green apple with notions of warm bread and nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied, layered and elegantly textural, it's rich but controlled, with racy underlying acids and a long finish.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
A blend of 1ers crus Combes, Créot and Perrières. There is a lighter green tint here, with very elegant, albeit ripe fruit, some pears, followed by tight lemon and lime citrus acidity. Fair balance
Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy
Blend of three parcels (Les Combes, ‘exotic’ En Créot and ‘mineral’ Les Perrières), all domaine fruit, and named after his grandmother, mother of his father, who died in 2016. Tank sample.
Almost fat! Lots of richness and impact. Real chiselled structure but there’s a whack of refined fruit here. Splashy impact!
