International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92Tangy aromas of apricot, orange peel and honey; smells like noble rot! Then dense, sweet and powerful, with a mid-palate dominated by orange peel and nut oil. Like the 2009 Batard this is relatively high in alcohol but it has the material to support it. I'd give it five or six years in the cellar to harmonize and gain in complexity.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2011
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The 2009 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatieres bursts onto the palate with an exciting array of mineral-infused fruits. It shows fabulous intensity in a weightless, beautifully articulated style. Hints of smoke and ash add additional layers of complexity. The long, clean finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. This is one of the most backward, vibrant wines of the year. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2014+.Author: Antonio Galloni
Wine Spectator | Rating: 88This white combines peach, apple and bitter citrus elements in a positive way. It's rich and lively, with a mix of fresh and bitter notes on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 75 cases made.Author: Bruce Sanderson
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.
