2020 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Bourgogne Blanc
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 2020 Bourgogne Chardonnay offers up aromas of pear, crisp green apple, freshly baked bread and oatmeal, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and precise palate, concluding with a chalky finish. As usual, it derives from four parcels—in the communes Meursault, Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet—in the Côte de Beaune.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2022)
A mix of domaine and purchased fruit. Tasted after Caroline Morey’s wines, the extra depth of colour stood out. Plumper but not quite dense even so, some lemon notes, a little youthful bitterness, good length, soundly made.
