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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Champlots displays notes of nutmeg, sweet confit lemon, citrus zest and praline. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and pure with a fleshy attack that gives way to a more tensile, saline mid-palate and finish.
