Pierre-Yves Colin is one of Burgundy’s most highly regarded winemakers. After working at his father’s domaine for 11 years, Pierre-Yves established his own winery from inherited vines back in 2005. Since then, he has become a benchmark producer of white wines from the Côte de Beaune. All of his white wines are whole bunch pressed, spontaneously fermented, and aged for up to 18 months sur-lie in oak barrels with no batonnage (lees stirring). All wines are bottled unfiltered.
Pierre-Yves currently farms vines across some of Burgundy’s most beloved appellations, from Chassagne-Montrachet to Saint-Aubin and beyond. Nearly 20 years in, Pierre-Yves’ wines continue to get better and better (and more in demand) with every vintage. PYCM wines are known for their pleasantly reductive nature, mineral-driven flavor profiles, and serious ability to age – that is, if you have the patience to wait.
