International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94($117) Knockout Perrieres nose of citrus fruit, hazelnut, crushed stone and nut oil. At once powerful and sweet, with terrific perfume and cut to the flavors of spices, flowers and minerals. For all its sweetness, there's powerful stoniness underneath. Finishes very long and perfumed. Hardly austere today, but I'd give this four or five years in a cool cellar before pulling the cork.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2010
The latest in a long line of Burgundy producers, Pierre Yves Colin-Morey is intimately familiar with the vineyards and growers of the region. These relationships allow him to select the absolute best crop portions from his preferred sites each year. Colin-Morey is strict about quality and his standards are very high; if he feels that a particular wine, once fermented, is not of an acceptable caliber, he will sell it off in bulk rather than see it through bottling. The wines see no batonnage at all during their 15 -18 month elevage period, and they are coveted by enthusiasts and collectors around the world.
