Wine Advocate, January 2019,
The 2017 Saint-Aubin Le Banc offers up aromas of green orchard fruit, citrus oil and almond paste, followed by a medium to full-bodied, elegantly glossy palate with good depth at the core, tangy acids and a chalky finish. It's a great introduction to Pierre-Yves Colin's style. 88-90.
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.
