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

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

Morgeot is cumulatively the largest Premier Cru vineyard in Chassagne-Montrachet, encompassing a handful of other Premier Cru climats. Morgeot is one of the largest 1er Cru situated near - and named for - the Abbaye de Morgeot at the southern end of Chassagne-Montrachet village. Morgeot is thought to come from the Latin for boundary, as this vineyard lies on the edge of the Cote d'Or administrative department. The terroir in Morgeot is made up of a heavier clay-gravel mix than the climats further up the hill. Based on Bathonian limestone, it is free-draining and helps to encourage deep root growth to access mineral-laden water deeper in the ground. The resultant wines tend to have some stony characters, and many have attributed this to the limestone here.

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!
