Description

100% Chardonnay. Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey 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 the 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.

Tasting Notes
Opening with notes of pear, white flowers, wheat toast and struck match, Pierre-Yves Colin's 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes is medium to full-bodied, layered and textural, with a tightly wound core, incisive acids and superb mid-palate amplitude. In a vintage that can be a touch diffuse at other addresses, this is a great success at the communal level.
