About

91-93

"The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot is one of the highlights of the range this year, unfurling in the glass with a classy bouquet of beeswax, Anjou pear, petrol, white flowers and subtle spices. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, pure and tangy with a tight-knit, nicely concentrated core and a penetrating and saline finish."

90-92 Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

"(this was the first vintage Colin harvested in 2017, as he wanted to avoid "too much fatness"): Bright, pale yellow-green. Nose dominated by pear, menthol and stone. A bit hard-edged and tough to taste today, showing an element of fresh herbs, firm acidity and a slight phenolic dryness. Like a few of the foregoing wines, this will need time to harmonize. Finishes with a slightly hard-edged lemon zest quality. Colin told me that he may rack the wine this summer but that his current plan is not to bottle his '17s until next March. He also noted that the yield here was easier to control in 2017 because the vineyard had escaped the frost in 2016."

Product Description:

"Pierre-Yves Colin is the eldest son of the famed Marc Colin. After working as the winemaker at his father’s domaine from 1994 to 2005, he established his own domaine from family vineyards he inherited from his family. Since that time, he has rapidly become a star in the Cote de Beaune and is now considered one of Burgundy’s top producers. 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. As scary as it may seem, with each new vintage his wines seem to get better and better. This is not only one of the top domaines in Chassagne, this is one of the great winemakers and domaines in the world." - Importer
