Last June, I descended to the cellar with Pierre Yves Colin-Morey in Chassagne Montrachet for the first time. My friend, Florence who produces wine with her family near Meursault joined me, and truth be told it was one of the most memorable tastings I've ever had.

Of course the 2015's in barrel were impressive beyond words, but the greatest pleasure came from witnessing these two producers discuss their challenges related to winemaking, but more so with family dynamics. The generational shifts within Burgundy domaines can be seamless, but often they are not. In the end, both Florence and I walked away more impressed with the caring and sensitive demeanor of the man than with the exceptional wines we tasted.

The well documented hot and dry conditions of 2015 had me prepared for barrel tasting whites throughout the Côte de Beaune. But, I knew if there was one address capabable of mitigating the challenging growing season it would be here. The use of larger barrels and an eye toward picking with plentiful acidity are two steps Pierre Yves takes annually to ensure his wines are built upon a linear sense of structure with unrivaled freshnesh. He was once famously quoted (or infamously in some circles) as saying "Riesling is my model". Of course, it's those straight line, fine-grained, and uncompromising mineral qualities of Riesling that he's fond of.

The 2015's from Pierre Yves are vivid, racy, and deeply concentrated. Quantities here are very limited, and orders will be fulfilled based upon time of request, as well as balanced requests.
