2017 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Saint-Aubin 1er Cru La Chateniere #166286482
Reviews 92 points Wine Advocate "...opening in the glass with a youthful bouquet of crisp green apple, pear, white flowers and citrus oil that's still a little reserved. On the palate, however, the wine is more accessible: medium to full-bodied, with a glossy attack, succulent acids and chalky dry extract. (WK)" 91 points Burghound "A broad-ranging and very pretty if again mildly exotic nose is comprised by notes of wood toast, white and yellow orchard fruit nectarine and mandarin orange. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors brim with dry extract that imparts a succulent, even seductive, mouth feel that carries over to the firm and lingering finish. (AM)"

About Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey
With a combination of traditional and modern techniques, Pierre-Yves extracts the best from each vintage. His approach in the cellar includes high-pressure extraction methods, eschewing punch-downs, and aging wines in 350-L demi-muids, with the St. Aubins aged for 12 months and other cuvées aged for up to 18 months. The wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve their character.
Pierre-Yves has evolved his techniques in response to issues such as premature oxidation, no longer employing battonage and maintaining an unheated cellar to encourage malolactic fermentation. He has also adjusted his oak regime to focus on balance and elegance, opting for larger barrels to limit the influence of oak on the wines. To preserve the integrity of his wines, Pierre-Yves seals bottles with wax on top of untreated corks.
The domaine's wines, which are eagerly anticipated with each vintage, exhibit incredible depth, complexity, and a true sense of place. They reflect the growing season and its challenges, with a focus on finesse, reduction, harmony, and minerality. Each wine, whether from their own vineyards or sourced through their négociant business, showcases the mastery of Pierre-Yves Colin Morey and his deep knowledge of Burgundy.
