PYCM 2015 HORIZONTAL - (11.09.2018.)



2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru

Rating: 93/100 (4,3)

Slightly greenish in the beginning. Develops with vivid ripe fruit: exotic and citrus. Minerality of crushed rocks. Oily texture. Extroverted character of Garenne terroir with light soil offering more finesse.

La Garenne is ‘domaine’ cru. Belonged to an aunt, who previously sold the grapes to Olivier Leflaive. Vines are 65+ years old.

This wine will shine many years ahead, but already approachable.

2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Champs-Gain - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru
Rating: 95/100 (4,5)

Reductive opening. Flinty minerality that develops in Iodine. Very floral with remarkable grace and transparency. High acidity. Succulent and supple wine with pleasant oily structure.

Own vineyards in the best section for white Chassagne. The mid-slope vineyards lie at 250–330 metres are well exposed but sheltered and face directly southeast.

Wonderful to drink young or with age.

2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru
Rating: 94/100 (4,4)

Pronounced aroma intensity with a fine citrus top-line. Flinty mineral. Fills the mouth with considered energy and a very nice complexity. Super finishing flavour, discreetly long and mouth-watering.

Own vineyards in the same section of Chassagne as Les Champs Gains. Very difficult to choose between these two, but Chenevottes to my taste is 1-inch behind in this 2015 PYCM tasting.

2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru
Rating 97+/100 (4,75)

Stony mineral with great aromatic depth. Almost silky herb note and camomile. Pure with a richer body and intense flavour. Steely elegant.

Parcel from wine-maker’s parents towards the top with stony and shallow soil. It’s his reference for all the other wines, never high alcohol, never low. Caillerets is one of the most distinguished wines of his cellar and my personal favourite of the tasting.

Multidimensional Grand Cru quality in all but name.

2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Abbaye de Morgeot - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru
Rating 95/100 (4,5)

Quite reserved opening. Develops w/ floral aromas of honeysuckle. Palate of young wine w/ crisp high acidity. Mineral & citrus aftertaste, lovely long finish.

A parcel bought in 2013, 2014 is the first vintage from these 50yo vines. High part of the vineyard w/ gravelly, clayey limestone soil.

Both red & white wines are made in the vineyard. It surrounds the Abbaye de Morgeot itself, a large residence that was once home to an order Cistercian monks.

2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Baudines - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru
Rating: 92/100 (4,2)

Waxy, less depth as opposed to l’Abbaye. Palate is floral and citrus. Energetic and nervous.

Baudines is situated near Santenay, much cooler as it’s one of the most elevated plots of Ch-M. Less deep white clay soil. Pierre-Yves has dealt with the same source since 2005 and knows the plot as if his own.

2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Meursault 1er Cru Charmes - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Meursault 1er Cru
Rating: 94+/100 (4,45)

Fruit nose with ginger hint. Here comes the Meursault mouth-filling power and high acidity. Less depth as opposed to Ch-M we tasted in the previous flight. Generous wine, but still a baby.

Fruit comes from the prized Dessus sector (top part), in the middle of Lafon’s portion, next to Puligny Combettes and touching Perrières.

2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Meursault 1er Cru
Rating: 96+/100 (4,65)

Beautiful Meursault nose - fragrant and powerful with much volume and depth. Layers of rich dense fruits. Flinty mineral with citrus finish. Full-body with developing buttery and almond flavours demonstrating huge potential for aging.

Almost on par with Caillerets, so mostly depends which style do you prefer more: Mersault or Ch-M?

Genevrieres are among commune’s finest wines located on the limestone slopes.

2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Meursault 1er Cru Les Poruzots - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Meursault 1er Cru
Rating: 93/100 (4,3)

Tasted right next to powerful Genevrieres, so showing less power. More grassy green young aromas. Seems weaker and diluted, but still rich Meursault style with nice texture and hints of exotic fruits. Vibrant acidity.

2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Corton-Charlemagne - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Rating: 96/100 (4,6)

Very floral and delicate at this young age. Purity and consideration. Beautiful texture and weight. Harmonious wine with ideal balance as GC should be. Very long lasting finish.

A blend of Pernand and Aloxe.

The wines are magnificent but the issue here is the availability. Only one barrel of Corton-Charlemagne produced each year.
