Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne Montrachet Abbaye de Morgeot Premier Cru “Clement & Emma” 2017
Only 90 cases of Abbaye de Morgeot were produced and the cuvee Clement & Emma is a special cuvee from within the choicest parcel of the appellation.
With his imposing frame and towering presence, Pierre-Yves Colin can sometimes seem built more for a rugby pitch than a cellar. When in conversation, he listens intently, his intense eyes never averting their gaze. When he speaks, it is with great purpose and determined passion; every word making it clear that you are in the presence of a true master of his craft. In the 15 years since starting his own domaine, the Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey name – or PYCM, as he is also known – has become synonymous with excellence. Today he is one of the most revered vignerons in the world.
His choice to use larger demi-muid barrels and eschew the use of battonnage, makes each one of his bottlings a clear expression of its terroir and a study in mineral-driven Chardonnay. Tasting in the Colin-Morey cellar (or anywhere you are lucky enough to have a bottle), is truly a special experience. If you are thinking of buying a great white burgundy, this is it!
