Rising Star of White Burgundy - Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey
Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey is based in Chassagne-Montrachet in Cote de Beaune of Burgundy. Pierre-Yves Colin worked as the winemaker at his father’s famed domaine (Domaine Marc Colin in Saint-Aubin) from 1994 to 2005. After leaving his family's vineyard, he established his own domaine with his wife Caroline Morey (the daughter of another famed Burgandian family, Domaine Jean-Marc Morey in Chassagne). Since that time, he continuously developed his wine-making techniques, and rapidly became a star in the Cote de Beaune. He is now considered as one of Burgundy’s top chardonnay producers. His choice to use larger oak barrels and abandoning the use of lees stirring, no filtration, no fining, and using of natural yeasts, makes each one of his bottlings a clear expression of its terroir and has become a model in mineral-driven Chardonnay.
Nowadays, his wines have achieved "must-buy" status among sommeliers, collectors, and
Burgundy drinkers.
2010 Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
HKD $2375.00
"A green fruit, white flower, apple and wet stone suffused nose is followed by exceptionally rich and overtly muscular big-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate density. There is an impressive abundance of mouth coating extract that also serves to buffer the firm acid spine that shapes and supports the strikingly long finish. This extremely serious effort is clearly built to age for the long-term." - AM93-95

2010 Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Baudines
HKD $950.00
"An intensely citrus-suffused nose combines with soft mineral reduction notes that introduce rich but beautifully well-detailed flavors that possess a textured and stony mouth feel. The linear and citrusy finish is both highly persistent and absolutely bone dry with just a hint of austerity." - AM91-93

2012 Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru les Baudines
HKD $950.00
"Strong reduction renders the nose unreadable at present. There is outstanding detail and punch to the intensely mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess very good mid-palate concentration as well as excellent length on the balanced and refined finish. Textbook Baudines." - AM90-92

2012 Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Saint-Aubin 1er Cru les Champlots
HKD $522.50
"This plays right on the edge of reduction with otherwise pretty floral and citrus notes. This is even more concentrated and the minerality is more prominent as well with excellent volume and punch to the medium weight flavors that deliver a Chablis-like finish that is at once saline and very dry. This is well worth considering if you like very crisp and restrained St. Aubin." - AM90

2012 Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Meursault 1er Cru les Charmes
HKD $1235.00
"Once again there is that pungent combination of petrol and reduction dominating the nose. The beguilingly textured and extract-rich medium weight flavors possess superb depth on the balanced and strikingly persistent finish. This is really very good and I especially like the refinement and overall sense of harmony." - AM90-93

2012 Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru les Champs Gains
HKD $1140.00
"This possesses a nose that is basically identical to that of the Maltroie at present so if you are tempted to try a bottle young be sure to decant it. There is a seductive texture to the fleshy medium weight flavors that possess good persistence but not the same depth on the mildly rustic finish." - AM88-90
