2022 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey "Rosé de Pinot Noir", Burgundy, France

Faint strawberry, roses and hint of black pepper on the nose. This rose shows a nice medium body, with light acidity and fine tannins. Prickly tiny bubbles add to sense of freshness. Strawberries and hot pepper spice. The balance in this is exquisite.



Grapes come from Hautes Côtes de Beaune (85%) and Santenay (15%). Direct press rosé. Aged in large 2-3 year-old barrels. Unfined and unfiltered.


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.
