About Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey
As the son of St. Aubin’s most famous producer, Marc Colin, Pierre-Yves Colin learned about winemaking and viticulture from one of the best. In 2003, Marc divided his holdings among his four children, leaving Pierre-Yves with nearly six hectares of vineyards, mostly in St. Aubin and Chassagne-Montrachet, including many premier cru parcels and five grand crus. That same year, Pierre-Yves and his wife, Caroline Morey, started Maison Pierre Yves Colin-Morey with his inherited holdings, as well as some purchased fruit cultivated through their deep relationships as a négociant.
Based out of their new winery in Chassagne, Pierre-Yves and Caroline now share elite status alongside Burgundian legends like Leflaive, Roulot and Coche-Dury. With an encyclopedic knowledge of terroirs, Pierre-Yves employs sustainable viticultural practices and embraces long, traditional vinifications, and a signature reductive élevage. In the cellar, Pierre-Yves uses high-pressure extraction methods, eschews punch-downs, and ages the wines in 350-L demi-muids. Their St. Aubins age for about 12 months, while the Chassagnes and other cuvees age for up to 18 months before unfined, unfiltered bottlings.
