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

89-91 Points Allen Meadows
An alluring nose features notes of hazelnut, dried yellow fruit and soft floral notes. There is good volume to the rich medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent intensity and minerality on the balanced and lingering finish. This offers fine quality for its level and is worth checking out.

90-92 Points Vinous
Pale yellow. Reticent aromas of nectarine and anise. Juicy and sharply delineated thanks to fresh acidity; boasts lovely density and purity of peach fruit. Not hugely complex yet but finishes with noteworthy length.
