Wine Advocate | Rating: 93The bouquet on the 2011 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chenevottes lies in stark contrast to the Ancegnieres: much more strict and linear, more Puligny in style with orange blossom and a sprig of lemon thyme. And I prefer the palate, which has superb balance and focus: holding everything back on the entry before motoring toward a vibrant, white peach, nectarine and pear-driven finish. It does not possess enormous persistency, but that does not really detract from a great 2011 white Burgundy.Author: Neal Martin
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91Good pale yellow. Subtle aromas of pear, mint and white flowers are very Chassagne. At once dense and juicy, with a lovely sugar/acid balance enlivening the stone fruit and lemon flavors. Finishes brisk and long. A step up in intensity and length from the Saint-Aubin bottlings.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2013
Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Offers a subtle nose but remains racy on the palate, with a keen edge of acidity defining the green apple, lemon and stone flavors. A hint of seashore emerges in the end, gaining richness with air.Drink Dates: 2015-2022Author: 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.
