Description

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.

 

96 points James Suckling

Hints of croissant and cooked apple with citrus on the nose. Full-bodied with a dense middle palate, and a rich and flavorful finish of tarte tatin.(12/2022)

91-93 points Jasper Morris

Pale lemon colour with a fine racy nose, starts slim and elegant then opens out very nicely, with lemon confit notes and white stone fruit, medium bodied and attractively persistent. (10/2019)

90-92 points Burghound

Soft whispers of matchstick and smoke add a bit of breadth to the ripe white-fleshed fruit aromas that are trimmed in a deft application of wood. The delicious and nicely vibrant medium-bodied flavors possess both a finer texture as well as slightly better precision if not quite the same richness, all wrapped in a bitter lemon-suffused finish. I like the balance and generosity, and this should age effortlessly. (6/2020)

17.5/20 points Jancis Robinson

Deliciously creamy aroma with a light spice and clementine notes. But chalky too. Intense and quite open. Super-intense bright, ripe lemon, with just a hint of charry reduction on the aftertaste. Great purity of fruit that holds its head above the oak but the oak contributes to the texture and fabulous length. (JH) (11/2019)
