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....
From Les Champs Claudes. Vines aged 100+ years. 0.33 ha. One-third whole bunch, one-third en pelicelle (the Leroy method of snipping off individual berries from each bunch), one-third destemmed. Tank sample.
Bright crimson. Lightly fruity and easy. Quite an impact on the palate! Not deep-flavoured but very sincere and full of fruit.
16.5/20 points
