RATINGS

89-91The Wine Advocate

...very well-defined bouquet, with hints of apricot blossom and limestone...palate is fresh on the entry with crisp lime and green apples notes...

89-91Stephen Tanzer

Reticent, high-pitched aromas of lemon, lime and white flowers...very good cut to its citrus peel and noble herb flavors.

16.5Jancis Robinson

A little subdued on the nose. Masses of acidity and bone dry.

PRODUCER

Pierre Yves Colin-Morey

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey is a 13.5-acre domaine in Chassagne-Montrachet. Pierre-Yves is the eldest son of Marc Colin, who 40 years ago started the domaine that would become Marc Colin et Fils. Today Marc Colin et Fils is run by Marc’s two younger sons. Pierre-Yves was winemaker for Marc Colin et Fils from 1995 to 2005, but in 2006 Pierre-Yves struck out on his own with a small domaine and a micro-negociant business. He has expanded his properties since then and now his grapes are about 70% from his own parcels and 30% purchased. Colin-Morey produces about 6,000 cases a year and has Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards in Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. Pierre-Yves makes mostly white wines, from Grand Crus to villages appellations. But it is his Premier Cru whites that have most impressed reviewers and collectors. Clive Coates notes that Pierre-Yves makes wine that “is pure, elegant and precise. He is a name to watch.”
