"The 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes has turned out especially well. Mingling aromas of pear and orange oil with hints of baking spices, beeswax and wheat toast, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with a satiny attack and a long, chalky finish."

"Background hints of resin and rosemary oil add breadth to the aromas of white orchard fruit, citrus and a hint of herbal tea. There is very good volume to the caressing medium-bodied flavors that firm up noticeably on the firm, sappy and moderately rustic finale. This appears to possess fine development potential and is worth considering."

The Estate
Pierre-Yves Colin is the eldest son of the famed Marc Colin. After working as the winemaker at his fathers 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 Burgundys 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.

About Pierre Yves Colin-Morey
Pierre Yves Colin was the winemaker for his father's Domaine Marc Colin until 2005. He began his own domaine, first as a micro-négociant operation, focusing on tiny quantities of the finest wines that he can buy. Now he has grown his domaine with the help of family holdings to 70% plots that he owns and 30% grapes he purchases. His holdings are mostly in Chassagne-Montrachet (where the domaine is located) but he also produces multiple bottlings of Meursault, St. Aubin, and Puligny-Montrachet.

Pierre-Yves has rapidly become a star in Cote de Beaune and is now considered one of the pre-eminent young producers of White Burgundy. 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. Tasting in the Colin-Morey cellar (or anywhere you are lucky enough to have a bottle), is truly a special experience. With each vintage Pierre-Yves continues to prove his enormous talent and we look forward to drinking his years for many years to come!
