Pierre-Yves Colin was the winemaker for his father's Domaine Marc Colin until 2005. He began his own domaine, first as a micro-négociant operation, focusing on tiny quantities of the finest wines that he can buy. Now he has grown his domaine with the help of family holdings to 70% plots that he owns and 30% grapes he purchases. His holdings are mostly in Chassagne-Montrachet (where the domaine is located) but he also produces multiple bottlings of Meursault, St. Aubin, and Puligny-Montrachet. Pierre-Yves has rapidly become a star in Cote de Beaune and is now considered one of the pre-eminent young producers of White Burgundy.
This NSG bottling is a classic representation of Pinot Noir and depicts a very good expression of terroir. The wine shows an amazing balance and acidity. Although it’s drinking well now, this bottle will age gracefully over the next 10-20 years. Sustainably grown, native yeast fermentation, and bottled unfiltered.
