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
A fine Burgundy wine produced by Pierre Yves Colin Morey from Chardonnay grapes from 40 year old vines. It is a great white wine that gives a typical Meursault nose of hazelnut and acacia flowers, for an intense and consistent sip characterised by a beautiful minerality and brilliant acidity.

94 Points - Decanter
Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey's 45-year-old parcel is in the lower part of Les Narvaux close to Genevrières, but is still comparatively elevated at 300 metres. This is scented and appealing, with aromas of white pepper and jasmine on the taut and typically focussed palate.

92 Points - Wine Spectator
A racy, sinewy style, this evokes lime blossom, apple, baking spice and mineral flavors. Harmonious, building to a long, citrus-infused finish. Best from 2021 through 2025. 50 cases imported.

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Aromas of hazelnut cream, green orchard fruit, crisp white peach and spring flowers introduce the 2017 Meursault Les Narvaux, a medium to full-bodied wine with good depth at the core, bright acids and chalky structuring dry extract. It's one of the more reserved wines in this year's collection but it's very promising.
