- Presentation of the winery
Working in the family estate (Marc Colin et Fils) until 2005, Pierre-Yves Colin initiates his own activity in 2001, creating with his wife Caroline Morey a grape purchasing company, allowing him to implement its first vinification. Colin-Morey estate was born in October 2005, when Pierre-Yves Colin decided to launch his own production, thanks to the 6 hectares of vineyards inherited from the family vineyard. The estate is established in the municipality of Chassagne-Montrachet, and produces famous wines such as Saint Aubin, Chassagne-Montrachet, Santenay or Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Corton.
Working in the utmost respect of soils and terroirs, the estate produces about 70,000 bottles annually, resulting in two thirds from the estate's vineyards, the remaining third being derived from purchased grapes. To produce wines with native tang, Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey ensures the control of yields, the harvest is done at maturity. The wine is grown up without to many interventions.
Puligny is one of the greatest terroirs of Burgundy, allowing the Chardonnay grape to express the best of itself. The Puligny-Montrachet has a beautiful golden yellow color, with green highlights. The nose is really fine and quite complex, giving floral notes and dried fruit, followed by mineral tones characteristic of Puligny.
