"There are whispers that Burgundy 2018 could become one of the region's all-time great vintages. Tim Atkin MW, Decanter's Burgundy correspondent, reports that 2018 is one of the greatest ever vintages. One local négociant, Philippe Pacalet, compared it to the mythical 1947 harvest and the Bureau Interprofessionnel des Vins de Bourgogne (BIVB) described the year as ‘ideal’." --Decanter
"100% Pinot Noir from a 55 year old single vineyard 'Lieu-dit' in the Hautes Cotes de Beaune.
High altitude village of Cormot-le-grand, near Saint-Aubin Lieu dit ‘En vignes Baudet’, 55 year old vines. Clay and limestone soil with southwest exposure. Direct press rosé, aged in large 2-3 year old barrels. Unfined and unfiltered.
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
