Overview of the Wine
Pierre-Yves Colin was the winemaker for his father's Domaine Marc Colin until 2005. He began his own domaine, first as a micro-négociant operation, focusing on tiny quantities of the finest wines that he can buy. Now he has grown his domaine with the help of family holdings to 70% plots that he owns and 30% grapes he purchases. His holdings are mostly in Chassagne-Montrachet (where the domaine is located) but he also produces multiple bottlings of Meursault, St. Aubin, and Puligny-Montrachet. Pierre-Yves has rapidly become a star in Cote de Beaune and is now considered one of the pre-eminent young producers of White Burgundy. 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. Tasting in the Colin-Morey cellar (or anywhere you are lucky enough to have a bottle), is truly a special experience. With each vintage Pierre-Yves continues to prove his enormous talent and we look forward to drinking his years for many years to come!

Tasting Notes
50-year-old vines above limestone and gravel marl are the source for this wonderful Pinot, giving it richness and full flavours across a broad spectrum. There's a long roll call of characters on display, such as dark cherry, pepper, black tea, earth, spice and some herbal hints, with more than the expected level of tannin, so there's some grip in the mouth.

This is definitely a wine that will benefit from some patience in order to reveal itself fully.
