Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey is the eldest son of Marc Colin. He used to work at the domaine from his family from 1994 until 2005, but already in 2001 he established a négociant business together with his wife Caroline. In 2005 Colin-Morey started his own domaine, with 6 Ha of vineyards from Marc Colin, which was his share.
Pierre-Yves has most of his own vineyards in and around the small villages of Saint-Aubin and Chassagne-Montrachet in the Côte de Beaune. But his complete range of wines also include Puligny-Montrachet, Meursault and the Grands Crus Bâtard-Montrachet, Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet and even Le Montrachet, all produced from bought-in grapes.
All his wines are kept in barrel for up to 18 months and the bottles are sealed with wax on top of the corks. The wines are also bottled without filtration. His own holdings include several parcels in the 1er Crus from Saint-Aubin such as “La Chatenière”, “En Remilly” and “Les Champlots”. In Chassagne-Montrachet, Colin-Morey has plots in the 1er Cru vineyards “Les Chevenottes” and “Caillerets”. The majority of his wines are produced from the Chardonnay grape, but Colin-Morey also produces some red wines from Pinot Noir from Saint-Aubin and Santenay.
Although the domaine is still quite young, the wines from Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey already have the attention from wine lovers all over the world. Furthermore, his wines receive high ratings (on average 90 – 95 points) from the various well known and respected wine writers and magazines, such as Jancis Robinson MW, Wine Spectator and La Revue du Vin de France, to mention a few.Read more
