[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

91-93 Points Vinous
Bright lemon-yellow color. Pungent aromas of lemon and lime are complicated by a subtle leesy quality. A distinct step up in energy from the Narvaux, with its penetrating lemon and lime flavors complemented by saline minerality and a minty nuance. No shortage of acidity here. Finishes with excellent echoing length. Colin says these vines are situated “in the middle of Lafon’s Charmes du Haut.”

92 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Charmes has a pleasing richness and generosity on the nose: citrus fruit, a touch of dried pineapple and later with aeration, attractive almost resinous/candlewax aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, a little grainy and certainly quite saline in style. There is a cheeky dab of lemon sherbet on the finish to complete what is a very fine Meursault Charmes, one that actually surpasses the 2014.
