Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Chassagne-Montrachet, Morgeot 2018
Received in Original Carton
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.

Really pretty! Precise and bright, with rich fruit balanced with nice acidity and cut. I’ve been so focused on 17 and 19 white burg, but this was a great example of how 18’ in the right hands can offer a similar amount of energy. 8/13/2023
