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.

A marvellous blend of fruit from Narvaux, Grands Charrons and Vireuils, gently pressed and fermented whole cluster, with hardly any settling. This is classic Meursault, with notes of ripe apple, butter and hazelnut on the nose. The palate is rich, but there is still enough structure and freshness to sustain a lovely, lingering finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2034.

In this low-yielding vintage, Pierre-Yves Colin opted to produce a 2019 Meursault Village, blending fruit from Narvaux (which he often bottles as a lieu-dit cuvée) with grapes from Grands Charrons and Vireuils. This is a fine hillside cuvée, mingling aromas of crisp orchard fruit, praline and lemon oil with hints of dried white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, it's bright and chalky, concluding with a long finish. 90-92 Points.

Moderate sulfur pushes the aromas of hazelnut and acacia blossom to the background at present. The rich, caressing and punchy flavors possess an appealing energy and brightness on the palate while exhibiting sneaky good length on the focused and linear finale where once again there is a trace of warmth. 89-91 Points.
