2021 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.
A super-fresh nose is comprised mostly by notes of citrus and apple scents. The racy, delicious and agreeably textured middleweight flavors offer enough depth, persistence and development potential to warrant a few years of cellaring. Drink through 2025+.

The 2021 Bourgogne Chardonnay is a notable success, exhibiting aromas of pear, toasted nuts and white flowers, followed by a medium-bodied, satiny and incisive palate. It's now derived from only three parcels—in Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet—since Colin lost his source in Meursault.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Feb 01, 2023)
The 2021 Bourgogne Blanc comes from three vineyards in Puligny, Chassagne and Saint-Aubin. This is quite elegant on the nose, understated even with Granny Smiths and a hint of white peach. The palate is well balanced with a lovely texture, impressive weight for a regional white and with welcome "bite" on the finish. Enjoy over several years. Drink 2023-2030.
Neal Martin - Vinous
In tank, racked before the harvest from 350 litre barrels, a quarter new. Nearly full yield. Pale lemon and lime. The fruit is impeccable, apples and a little citrus, medium length, fresh acid finish, but balanced and attractive. Drink from 2024-2026.
