2018  Affordable Pierre Yves Colin Morey Burgundies

Pierre-Yves Colin, eldest son of the legendary Marc, left the family estate in 2006 for 2.5  ha of vines in centered in St-Aubin, He and his wife Caroline Morey in  2015. The whites are pressed in whole bunches and the juices which result are very little settled in order to preserve a maximum of nourishing lees, with a long 20 months cellaring. The result is simply superb with racy,  very elegant wines are simply superb. Pierre-Yves Colin is undoubtedly one of the most gifted winemakers of his generation.

 from his own 55-year-old vines in Cormot in the Hautes-CĂ´tes. Slightly pink skins. Unfiltered. No stirring on this or any of his whites. Herbal steely nose, a touch of pear.

2018 Pierre Yves Colin Morey Bourgogne Chardonnay  

Outstanding Top value A fresh and ripe nose combines notes of apple, pear and a pretty floral whiff. There is good vibrancy and very good density as well to the delicious flavors that conclude in a citrus-tinged finish that is refreshing and sneaky long. This is quite good for what it is and worth checking out, especially as an all-around house white.” Burghound  Reg 50, Sale 45 Net

2018 Pierre Yves Colin Morey St. Aubin Banc

A pungent nose of soft reduction and wood toast largely pushes what appears to be ripe fruit to the background. More interesting are the denser and more serious medium-bodied flavors that possess very good vibrancy, all wrapped in a clean, dry and citrusy finish where the wood telegraphed by the nose slowly reemerges. Burghound   Reg 78, Sale 67  Net

 

Red

2018 Colin Morey Santenay Gravieres 1er Cru 

“No fining or filtration. Light to mid cherry. Again that peppery freshness and almost a touch of Cabernet Franc in its herbal character but the red fruits on the palate are all Pinot. Pretty and scented and the tannins offer a firm, fine structure. Needs longer but is already in harmony. Lively and long and fine-grained.” Jancis Robinson   Reg 99, Sale 88 Net

 

Rose

2019 Colin Morey Bourgogne Pinot Noir Rose from a 55 year old vineyard in the Hautes Cotes de Beaune. Pale delicate color. A beautifully fine elegant and racy rose with real finesse and excellent character and complexity Pretty and articulated, very Pinot Reg 42, Sale 36 Net
