2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

$799.00

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.

Description

91-94 Points Allen Meadows
This too displays notes of smoky mineral reduction along with notes of green apple, spiced pear and white flowers. There is a beguiling sense of tension to the sleekly muscular big-bodied flavors that are also quite mineral-driven on the powerful, beautifully long and citrus-tinged finale.

94 Points Vinous
IBright, light yellow. Very reticent but pure scents of lemon zest, menthol and wet stone convey outstanding calcaire energy. Tactile and energetic, displaying an exhilarating balance of sweet and saline elements. The impression of sucrosité gives the middle palate a creamy richness but the intense nectarine fruit comes across as extremely primary and fresh. Finishes with outstanding palate-dusting minerality and rising length. Not at all austere owing to its tactility, but this wine should nonetheless age slowly and gracefully.
