Bourgogne blanc – Pierre Yves Colin Morey

September 23, 2018

PYCM 2018

Pierre Yves Colin Morey has been a favorite in recent white Burgundy tastings… So it was time to dedicate a tasting focusing on this talented winemaker!

In a nutshell, the main learnings are that the St-Aubin are definitely in the league of great wines… 2010 vintage was absolutely gorgeous and at perfect maturity at age of 8… The 1er Cru were a bit too ripe compared to the perfectly balance village wine, but improved a lot after 3 hours aeration… The Grand Cru was way too young at age a 4 and waste of wine… But overall a very memorable tasting!!

2016 Gerard Thomas Bourgogne Blanc
Nice nose of mineral, wet stones, yellow grass dryed in the sun, green apple, hint of vanilla… Taste laser sharp vanilla & citrus, very nice for an entry level Burgundy! (90 points)

2014 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Bourgogne Blanc
Light nose of yellow apple, grilled hazelnuts, hint of greenness… very pure green & yellow apple, nice concentration for an entry level Burgundy! (91 points)

2015 Gerard Thomas Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chatenière
Very nice nose of honey, fleur d’accacia, yellow grass, yellow apple, nice mineral smell… Ananas, exotic fruit, nice citrus & mineral finish. (93 points)

2014 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chatenière

2013 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs-Gain
Ripe ananas, mineral & sulfur, hint of honey… Nice concentration, nice acidity, hint of mineral, hint of herbal in the finish… Good, but below the level of village Puligny 2010!! (93 points)

2011 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes
Candied nose, more ripe than the village wines, with less acidity… Very nice mineral taste, hint of citrus, good but a little bit below the village wines of 2010 vintage… (92 points)
