Wine Advocate | Rating: 96The 2011 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru has an understated bouquet that demands coaxing from the glass, but with a little encouragement it gives up lovely nectarine and white peach scents. Still, the aromatics give out the message that it needs three or four years in bottle. The palate is very precise and wonderfully balanced, perfectly judged acidity and extremely well-focused. It has a vibrant, sorbet-fresh finish that simply dances about the mouth with merry abandon. This is exquisite and encapsulates everything a Chevalier-Montrachet should be.Author: Neal Martin
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94Pale yellow. Slightly sullen, medicinal aromas of pineapple, menthol and crushed stone. Then taut and powerful in the mouth, with little early pliancy to the penetrating flavors of fresh pineapple and crushed rock. All in reserve today and in need of at least several years of cellaring. Classically dry on the high-pitched, echoing finish, which leaves behind piquant notes of dusty pepper, ginger, wild herbs and crushed stone. In the same bracing, mineral-driven style as Colin's superb Meursault Perrieres and Corton-Charlemagne.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.
