Wine Advocate | Rating: 93The 2015 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is very fine, offering up notes of preserved citrus, white peach, toasted nuts and petrol. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, concentrated and powerful, with a deep core and serious structural musculature, juicy acids, and a long, chewy finish. This is notably deeper and more complete than it showed from barrel in the fall of 2016, which seems to confirm Pierre-Yves's observation that in his experience Corton-Charlemagne is one of the wines that benefits most from long élevage.Drink Dates: 2022 - 2040Author: William KelleyIssue: 236
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.
