2013 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey 1er Cru St. Aubin "En Remilly"

SKU #1330655 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2013 Saint Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly possesses the best nose of Pierre-Yves’s Saint Aubin premier crus with apricot blossom and lime-flower scents intermingling with the mineral notes. The palate is very well balanced with a taut line of acidity, very good weight in the mouth but not “fatness." The tension is maintained from the start to the graceful and focused finish. Pick of the bunch from P-Y's Saint Aubin? Definitely. (NM)  (12/2014)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 There is a background note of matchstick but not so much as to materially detract from the wide range of citrus and floral scents. The palate impression of the beautifully delineated medium weight flavors is notably mineral-driven and, consistent with the nose, there is plenty of citrus character on the focused, cool and markedly dry (but not aggressively so) finish. This moderately austere effort is packed with upside development potential but note that it will also need a few years of cellar time to unwind as it's presently very tight. *Top Value, Cellar Selection*  (6/2015)

91 points Vinous

 Less open than the Chatenière, hinting at pear and minerals on the nose. Juicy and sharply delineated, showing excellent mineral energy and cut to the lemon and lime fruit. Finishes stony and long, with terrific saline intensity and lift. A very strong Saint-Aubin cuvée. Colin-Morey filtered but did not fine his Saint-Aubins, bottling them last August. (ST)  (9/2015)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- 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.
Country:

France

- 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.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- 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.
