When people speak of Pierre-Yves Colin Morey, it is always with great reverence. It is also a reoccurring event that writers in the wine world cannot seem to find suitable and worthy words to summarize what Pierre-Yves Colin is crafting with Chardonnay in the Cotes de Beaune. Working with exclusively Chardonnay from the villages of St. Aubin and Chassagne, PYCM caught the world’s attention immediately after his first vintage in 2004. Even his Bourgogne Blanc seemed to have caused some rupture. Says Jancis Robinson, “It’s not often that a winemaker’s genius can be detected in a bottle of basic Bourgogne.” His practices are not exactly groundbreaking either; he presses the grapes slowly, fermentation happens naturally, and the wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
“I do things the old-fashioned way, which always takes more time.”
'Le Banc' is located near other Premier Cru level vineyards in Saint Aubin. They say this is his most forward Saint Aubin bottle (coming from 20 year old vines) and the one to drink first while his other bottles age.
