[protected]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.

Tasting Notes

90-92 Points Allen Meadows
Firm reduction renders the nose impossible to assess at present. Otherwise the detailed, intense and solidly precise medium-bodied flavors also possess plenty of energy as well as evident minerality on the relatively dry, class and impressively persistent finish. Lovely juice.

91 Points Vinous
Pale yellow-green. Aromas of pineapple, minerals, wet stone and white flowers. Juicy, penetrating wine with lovely minerality. Silkier than the Saint-Aubin en Remilly but also with excellent energy for the vintage. This rather powerful wine has not shut down yet from the bottling. Finishes with excellent length and no heaviness. The yield here was just 35 hectoliters per hectare due to the age of the vines and to the dry season.
