"Limpid orange-pink. Ripe red berries, candied orange zest, vanilla and a floral topnote on the deeply perfumed nose. Fleshy and broad on entry, offering pliant raspberry, bitter cherry and candied rose flavors that tighten up steadily on the back half. Shows more sweetness on the finish, which lingers with strong tenacity and resonating red fruit character. -- Josh Raynlds"

Pierre-Yves Colin is the eldest son of the famed Marc Colin. After working as the winemaker at his father’s domaine from 1994 to 2005, he established his own domaine from family vineyards he inherited from his family. Since that time, he has rapidly become a star in the Cote de Beaune and is now considered one of Burgundy’s top producers. His choice to use larger demi-muid barrels and eschew the use of battonnage, makes each one of his bottlings a clear expression of its terroir and a study in mineral-driven Chardonnay. As scary as it may seem, with each new vintage his wines seem to get better and better. This is not only one of the top domaines in Chassagne, this is one of the great winemakers and domaines in the world.
Best Rose Ever - This is a light smooth Rose. Very light in color. The best I have ever had.
