Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Chassagne-Montrachet, Les Ancegnières 2018
Pierre-Yves Colin 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 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.

If you're going to buy just one village Chassagne-Montrachet in 2018, this should be it. Situated right next to Bâtard-Montrachet, it's a taut, pithy, focused wine that will reward cellaring, with underlying power, assertive oak spice, hints of aniseed and yeast extract and a tangy, mouthwatering finish. Your chance to taste some PYCM magic at an appealing price. (TA) (10/2019)

Lemon and peach, as well as some almond and savory pastry aromas. Wet stones. Pears and lemons, too. There’s a fresh, cool and composed feel with sleek, elegant and quite focused peach and pastry flavors. Very balanced. Drink now. (12/2020)

Spice and pastry accents add detail to the core of peach, apple and lemon flavors in this elegant white. It's balanced on the racy side, with a long finish driven by the vivid structure. (BS, Web-2021)
