2014 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey St. Aubin 1er Cru "En Remilly"

SKU #1241328 90-92 points Vinous

 (from Colin-Morey's highest-altitude site in Chassagne-Montrachet but picked early; the malolactic fermentation ended just two weeks prior to my visit): Healthy pale yellow-green color. Sweeter and denser than the above Saint-Aubin samples, conveying a distinctly sappy quality to its lime and stone flavors. Finishes with enticing citrus zest lift. This vineyard prefers a cooler vintage, noted Colin-Morey. (ST)  (9/2015)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Moderate reduction dominates the nose with the exception of soft citrus nuances that are also present on the rich and relatively full-bodied flavors that exude a lovely and refreshing salinity on the sappy, detailed and admirably long finale. This isn't quite as tight as the Chatenière but it should also reward a few years of bottle age.  (6/2016)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This is clearly intent on biding its time. The palate is fresh and poised, here unfurling with each swirl of the glass to reveal notes of white peach, freshly-sliced pear and a touch of salinity lending tension on the finish. I would like the aromatics to find its voice during the next couple of years. I visited Pierre-Yves Colin after Nicolas Rossignol. Whilst the latter is about to make lock, stock and François Frère into a new facility, Pierre-Yves has just done it. In August 2015 to be exact, moving his 2014s barrel by barrel, leaving them for one month before racking. His brand new winery sits opposite the small but growing cluster of growers on the industrial estate outside Chassagne, joining Philippe Colin, Michel Niellon and Jean-Marc Pillot. What attracts them? Simple...space. Pierre-Yves told me how in the village of Chassagne he would have to transfer the wines between different cellars and was doing the press almost in his garden to the chagrin of his neighbors when he started at six in the morning.

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.
