The talented Pierre Yves Colin began his own domaine in 2005 after making wine for his father at Domaine Marc Colin for many years. First, he started as a micro-négociant, focusing on tiny quantities of the finest wines that he could 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. Earning a star reputation among the younger generation in Burgundy, his choice to use larger demi-muid barrels and eschew the use of battonnage made waves in the appellation. These techniques (or lack there of) make each one of his bottlings a clear expression of its terroir and a study in mineral-driven Chardonnay. Tasting Colin-Morey wines is truly a special experience. We are allocated precious bottles of each wine in each vintage.

Pierre Yves Colin on the 2013 vintage: '
The wines are fresher and have more terroir than the 2012s though they're not as dense and powerful. Still, I prefer the style of the 2013s because they make you feel like drinking them and that's always an encouraging sign for aging potential.'
