2020 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet "Vieilles Vignes", Burgundy, France

Background hints of resin and rosemary oil add breadth to the aromas of white orchard fruit, citrus and a hint of herbal tea. There is very good volume to the caressing medium-bodied flavors that firm up noticeably on the firm, sappy and moderately rustic finale. This appears to possess fine development potential and is worth considering.



"Our white grapes are pressed into whole bunches without any grinding. The pressings are long and soft in order to obtain the best juices for the material and complexity of our wines. The must ferment in 350-liter barrels (30% of new oak). The wines are aged between 15 and 20 months depending on the vintages without batonnage. The bottling is done without filtration, natural cork filling. We wax all our bottles for optimal and homogeneous preservation of our vintages."


Pierre-Yves Colin is the eldest son of Marc Colin. After working as the winemaker at his father’s domaine from 1994 to 2005, he established his own domaine alongside his wife Caroline Morey from vineyards they inherited from their historic families. Since that time, he has rapidly become an icon in the Cote de Beaune and is now considered one of Burgundy’s best producers. His fastidious farming, incredible attention to detail, use of larger demi-muid barrels, and long elevage, makes each one of his bottlings a clear expression of its terroir and a study in mineral-driven Chardonnay. Now with his sons Mathis and Clément joining the family domaine, the wines continue to set the standard for what is possible in this famed region. This is not only one of the top domaines in Chassagne, it is also one of the finest domaines in the world.
