4 /5

The greatest discovery of white Burgundy in the last decade is probably Pierre-Yves Colin. In 2001 Pierre-Yves started as a micro négociant in "haute couture" wines. At the time, he also worked for his father, the well-known and respectable winemaker Marc Colin from Saint-Aubin. But Pierre-Yves wanted to make even better wines and his father did not give him those options (according to Pierre Yves), which eventually resulted in a break and from 2005 Pierre-Yves was able to fully focus on his own company. The vast majority of the wine comes from its own grapes, and Colin also sources grapes from several fellow producers whom he knows well personally. The work in the vineyard and harvesting takes place under the guidance of Pierre Yves and his team, so that he has full control over the quality. His enormous drive, almost bordering on the obsessive, to make only the best possible.

The grapes come from our own vineyards and are picked entirely manually and selected with the utmost rigor. The wine is made in a very natural way, is not crossed, but very lightly filtered. Bâtonnage during vinification is not an issue. Pierre Yves believes this is manipulation of the wine, which matures for 14-18 months in used oak barrels of about 2-3 years old. The barrels are not toasted, but minimally burned to protect the wood.

The white Burgundy Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Sous Frétille has, like every Pierre Yves Colin Bourgogne, an unprecedented purity and a true reflection of crepe and terroir. The Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Sous Frétille Blanc reveals aromas of ripe citrus, confit lemon, white flowers and a hint of beaten match of his recent statements. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and textured, with fatty acids and a relatively open profile. The finish is juicy and mineral.

4 /5

Leuchtendes Gelb, delikate Aromen von frischen Aprikosen, Pfirsichen und einem Hauch von Melone; frisch und finessenreich mit animierendem Säurespiel vielschichtig; ausgewogen; ein Wein mit Schmelz und Klasse.

Lichte houtlagering: een gedeelte van de wijn heeft gerijpt in eiken vaten.
Een elegante, frisse witte wijn met mooie zuren in de smaak. De wijn is vol, levendig en prachtig in balans. Het boeket maakt indruk met delicate aroma's van verse abrikozen, perziken en hinten van meloen. 
Bijzonder aromatische wijn, vol frisse, intrigerende smaken die hem uitermate geschikt maken als aperitief of aan tafel bij vis, zeevruchten, wit vlees, asperges met zalm, gegrilde gamba’s en sashimi.
