2013 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Bourgogne Blanc

SKU #1194354 Allen Meadows - Burghound

 There is a hint of matchstick character to the mostly citrus-infused nose that leads to attractively vibrant, cool and delicious flavors that deliver solid persistence on the clean, dry and inviting finish. (AM)  (6/2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Bottled September 2013. Two parcels, from St Aubin and Puligny. Lusher on the nose than most. Correct with real chalky chew and life and interest. Juicy. Quite long.  (11/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2013 Bourgogne Chardonnay, which had been bottled already when I visited Pierre-Yves, has a light and pretty, floral bouquet rather than fruit-driven. The palate is crisp on the entry with sharp acidity and a sour lemon finish. Very elegant for a generic white Burgundy. (NM)  (12/2014)

K&L Notes

It may have a simple classification, but this blend of young St-Aubin and Puligny fruit sets the quality benchmark for the entire cellar. A perennial favorite of everyone, this is absolutely "buzzing" in 2013 with arresting purity and focus and great underlying tension.

The 2013 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Bourgogne Blanc is an affordable yet elegant entry point into the world of well-respected grower/wine-maker Pierre-Yves Colin Morey, whose portfolio of terroir-focused wines are well-worth exploring. With a winemaking philosophy built on a minimalist approach, the Bourgogne Blanc is free of battonage and fermented in larger demi-muid oak barrel, which reduces wood influence and allows the purity of fruit and terroir to speak for itself. The wine is sourced from young vines in Puligny Montrachet and St. Aubin, making this a great example of how a simple Bourgogne can be a poised, expressive, pleasure-driven experience. Clean and balanced with a touch of white fleshed fruit, stony mineral qualities and perky acidity, this Bourgogne Blanc is nicely structured with an intense lengthy finish. This is a perfect sunny day sipper or pairing partner with your favorite poultry or seafood dish.

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:

Puligny Montrachet

- Puligny is a village which has been called 'attractive, self-confident and unpretentious.' Some of the world's greatest dry white wines come from here. The Grands Crus of Montrachet, Chevalier Montrachet, Bâtard Montrachet, and Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet are on the southern edge, adjacent to the village of Chassagne. In Puligny, you can see the distinctly different soils which yield the different wines. The borders of the Grands Crus are anything but arbitrary, and the character of the wines form Puligny are distinct from Meursault to the north and Chassagne to the South. The vineyards closest to Meursault have thin soils, with slate and rock. Their wines are more delicate and minerally but no less lovely than the more powerful wines from the vineyards towards the Grands Crus.
