International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93Pale, bright yellow. Sexy spices lift orange and tangy mineral notes on the ripe, slightly exotic nose. Ripe, dense and tangy, showing a lovely balance of sweetness and acidity to its lemon and orange flavors. The long, perfumed finish features very good grip and lift, as well as the obvious influence of sweet oak. The yield here was in the restrained 40 hectoliters-per-hectare range.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2014
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.
