A Seasonal Favorite

Share

It’s our preference to have any wine we sell in stock all year. Of course over a year there are a lot of wines that run-out, and there are some (fortunately not too many) that are a once-a-year treat.

I lose track of time, but I would have sworn that I first met Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey in Burgundy in 2004, when I was lucky to visit him because of some astute friends who said: “this is the most exciting white Burgundy we’ve tasted for a long time”. I went back 3 years in a row, and was knocked-out every time. At the same time Robert Chadderdon began to offer the wines in New York, so it was easy to jump on the bandwagon, and while we didn’t have Colin-Morey on the shelf year-round, the supply seemed to last for months. That happy state passed some time ago; the word is out around the globe, and Colin-Morey comes but once a year -admittedly in 2 batches, with St Aubins in one, and the grander wines in a second, which has now arrived. I haven’t been to Burgundy for several years, but the pundits and our emissaries and friends bring back rave reviews, and say that P-Y C-M is, not surprisingly, getting more and more skilled at his craft. I’m looking forward to tasting one or two at home – at least a Narvaux, and maybe a Morgeots… JW

Colin-Morey, Pierre-Yves 2012 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeots

“Les Fairendes“ is one the more substantial blocks in Morgeots, but among the better situated ones. The 2012 is more stern than the 2013 vintage, with stone-inflected citrus fruits, and herbal and vegetal undertones of asparagus, sage and spearmint. The 2012 has weight and power, but will reward patience and cellaring. This wine has considerable aging potential. Jonas Mendoza
