Tasting Notes

    Wine Advocate, June 2018,
    Score: 85

    Produced largely from second-generation grapes, the 2016 Bourgogne Chardonnay is a nice wine in a challenging vintage, but it's an appreciable step behind other recent vintages. The wine offers up fragrant aromas of peach, citrus pith and struck match, followed by a bright, light to medium-bodied palate with moderate texture and tangy acids. Right now, it's a little angular, but I expect it to round out in bottle. 85/100. Date 2020-2030.

Producer

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey

Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey is based in the village of Chassagne Montrachet and is the creation of Pierre-Yves Colin and Caroline Morey. Talented winemaker Pierre-Yves started out at his father’s estate, Domaine Marc Colin in 1994. In 2001 he and his wife, Caroline Morey, set up a small négociant operation on the side and in 2005 he left the family domaine to pursue this venture full time, taking with him six hectares of Marc Colin vineyards. Today, a third of production is négoce while the rest comes from vines they own. In the winery, Pierre-Yves and Caroline have gone to great lengths to prevent premature oxidation, including using corks with a wider diameter. There is no bâtonnage and the wines are kept in barrel longer (mostly 350 litres demi-muids) to avoid the need for fining and filtration.

Region

Bourgogne

This blanket regional appellation can apply to wines throughout Burgundy (60% of the area's production) as long as they comply with regulations relating to grape type, yield and alcohol content. Reds and roses are from Pinot Noir or Gamay. Whites are Chardonnay. They are usually the most straightforward of the Burgundy wines, and as a result are the least expensive and the most approachable upon release. In the hands of a more serious producer these can represent exceptional value and quality. The wines are made with the same care and attention to detail as their grander wines. However, they may not qualify for a village or communal appellation because the vines are too young or the vineyard area is outside the appellation boundary.
