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.
95 points Decanter
Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey's vines are in the higher part of the clos on clay soils. Richer and broader than some of his wines - though everything is relative - it combines notes of crème fraîche and patisserie with racy, focused, palate-thrilling acidity and the subtle wood that's a feature of his style. Early picking was the key to the balance of this wine in 2018. Drinking Window 2023 - 2035. (TA) (10/2019)

A slightly riper nose features notes of exotic white and yellow orchard fruit, resin and a whisper of rosemary oil. The sleek and delicious flavors are rich but not quite as dense as those of the Chenevottes though they do possess an attractive texture while delivering fine length on the refreshing, citrusy and notably dry finale.
