History

Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey is based in the wine appellation of Chassagne-Montrachet in Burgundy. The eldest son of Marc Colin, Pierre-Yves worked at the family domaine from 1994 to 2005. Meanwhile, with his wife Caroline (née Morey) he had established a négociant business in 2001 under the name Colin-Morey. After the 2005 harvest he left the family domaine, taking with him his six-hectare share of the vineyards, which now form part of the Colin-Morey label.

Vineyards

This does not differentiate between wines from its own vineyards and those from purchased grapes. Pierre-Yves’s techniques have evolved since leaving the family domaine, in part in response to the problem of premature oxidation. There is no more battonage and the cellar is no longer heated to encourage the malolactic fermentation.

Winemaking

The wines are kept in barrel longer (the barrels are from François Frères and Chassin, with about one third new wood, including 350-litre casks), the St-Aubins being bottled before the next harvest but the remainder being kept on lees for up to 18 months. The bottles are sealed with wax on top of corks which have not been treated with peroxide.

Chateau Musar 1998 / This is a beautifully mature wine that is delicious to enjoy now. The wine has elegance, persistence and ethereal flavours of dried autumn leaves, black truffles and pu'er tea. Lovely, silky texture, supple palate and a long finish. An impressive wine that rivals the best of Bordeaux

Montrachet - Vintage 2005 Domaine de la Romanée Conti
“An opulent, ripe and moderately oaked in-your-face nose explodes from the glass, bringing incredibly com- plex and layered aromas that run from floral, citrus, spice and a full range of white and yellow fruit notes that complement to perfection the lush, rich and amazingly concentrated broad-scaled flavors that are underpinned by an intense minerality and a palate staining finish of simply unbelievable length. At this young stage, this is a massive Montrachet that is long on power and muscle and while it’s not as elegant as say the 2000, 2002 or 2004 versions, I believe that the refinement one typically finds in this wine will come in time. In sum, for sheer vi- nous fireworks, this is hard to beat and to call it a “wow” wine would be a considerable understatement. However, note that plenty of time will be required and it will be one of the longest-lived vintages in recent memory. A great, great effort.”(98pts BH)

Best of 2016 White Burgundies Part II - 97 points: Joseph Drouhin, Montrachet GC Laguiche
Half a dozen producers of Montrachet had so little crop in 2016 that they made a co-operative bottling, but the Drouhins' holdings in the north side of the Grand Cru were less devastated. The result is a majestic white, with spicy intensity, stylish oak and rich, palate-coating texture leavened by acidity. 2020-30

Le Montrachet, Domaine des Comtes Lafon 2009 / Quite a lot of new wood masks the flavour and character of the wine on the nose. Plus there is a bit of reduction. I don't find the grip, depth and class I am expecting in Le Montrachet. The follow through is a bit weak. No better than very good today.

“Thibault Liger- Belair Corton Grand Cru Les Renardes 2012 - I remember proudly serving a bottle of Corton 15 years back to an expert on burgundy. It was from a great vintage and from a reputed producer. My guest was only politely impressed. I was perplexed because the same guest was very appreciative of some of the other Premier Crus I had opened that evening! He was right since the Corton was tannic and almost rustic. It failed to impress! I did not touch approach Corton rouge for a long time. Why should I take the risk of being disappointed. This phase lasted many years till I discovered the joys of Corton made by my friend Jean-Nicolas Meo. Meo Camuzet’s Corton Clos Rognet is a wine to bring tears of joy. A wine to die for. Ever since then I am back to discovering Cordon.
I have since fallen in love with the Corton and most other wines made by Thibault Liger-Belair who is famously bio-dynamic. The Corton Les Renardes 2012 was all I could hope for in a young wine. Corton Les Renardes comes from a walled site which means the Vixens, I like that. Stony soil rich in iron with minimal clay just enough to give the vine complexity, minerality and softness. Thibault’s Les Renardes comes from the middle of the slope from 50 year old vines.
A beautiful translucent colour shimmering in the light already set the tone for the beautiful nose of red and dark fruit oozing with violet and just a hint of wet earth. All in balance which no new world pinot can match. I was in raptures just nosing the glass. I did not need to drink the wine. After some time I took my first sip having opened the bottle 2 hours in advance with a small pour. A rich lush wine greeted my palate with enough power to pair beautifully with most dishes. Once again the validity of the ratings given long back to Corton Les Renardes by Jules Lavalle in 1855 who classified it as Hors Ligne while Camille Rodier classifed it at the very top as a Tête de Cuvêe in 1920 was proven correct! 97 points ”
