Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Baudines 2013 (750ML)

(From 45+ year old vines) "An elegant if restrained nose reluctantly features notes of wet stone, cool lemon and rose petal aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is good richness to the beautifully well-detailed, naturally sweet and admirably complex medium weight flavors that possess real depth, all wrapped in a silky-textured and markedly stony finish that presently exhibits just a touch of austerity. This is a wine of harmony and finesse." 91-93pts Burghound

Les Baudines is one of Chassagne-Montrachet's most elevated Premier Cru sites. The vineyard is located at the very southern end of the commune, on the border with Santenay. It is planted mostly to Chardonnay, making an elegant, lean, white wine with fresh, stony characters. The top edge of Les Baudines reaches 1050ft. Les Baudines benefits from the Cote d'Or's limestone composition, with a soil that is made up of marly gravel and a little clay.

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. His choice to use larger demi-muid barrels and eschew the use of battonnage, makes each one of his bottlings a clear expression of its terroir and a study in mineral-driven Chardonnay. Tasting in the Colin-Morey cellar (or anywhere you are lucky enough to have a bottle), is truly a special experience. With each vintage Pierre-Yves continues to prove his enormous talent and we look forward to drinking his years for many years to come!
