Wine Advocate | Rating: 91Lying above the lieu-dit of Morgeot and occupying the same altitude as Cailleret on the west part of Chassagne toward Santenay, the 2011 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Baudines is adorned with a bashful nose that takes time to muster the courage to reveal its delicate Provencal herb scents: broom, fennel and thyme. The palate is well-balanced with a convincing, lightly honeyed entry, a fine thread of acidity and commendable weight toward the finish. It is a slightly conservative Chassagne-Montrachet, unwilling to fan out at the moment and remains tightly coiled throughout, despite vigorous aeration. I would afford this a couple of years in bottle and see if that finish evolves a little more?pizzazz. I think it will and Pierre-Yves reminded me that it is habitually rather masculine and rustic in its youth. Drink 2015-2023.Author: Neal Martin
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91Pale yellow. Pure perfume of peach and white flowers complemented by spicy oak. Tightly wound and rather robust in style, with lovely sappy stony energy dominating the middle palate. The long, classically dry finish shows juicy lemon and spice notes and very good grip.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2013
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.
