International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94(from 85-year-old vines that yielded a lot of tiny yellow grapes, according to Colin): Pale, green-tinged yellow. Very ripe aromas of peach, clove and minerals. Sweet, fat, rich and very ripe, with just enough acidity to frame the tangy nectarine and mandarin orange flavors. Shows a creamy old-vines quality and a rich, long, surprisingly firm-edged finish. The malo has finished here but I suspect this wine still has a bit more sugar to convert. This fruit was the ripest in 2013, coming in at about 12.2% potential alcohol and chaptalized to 12.8%.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2014
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The 2013 Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a very expressive bouquet like many Batard '13s from barrel: white peach, Mirin and apricot blossom, wonderful mineralite coming through with aeration. The palate is very well balanced, not a million miles away from the Meursault Perrieres, with a great crescendo of fruit on the spicy finish. Excellent.Author: Neal Martin
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.
