2019 Pierre-Yves Colin Morey Saint-Aubin ‘Le Banc’
This 100% Chardonnay hails from 50-year-old vines in the northernmost section or St. Aubin. This cold, high-altitude site produces a wine with racy acidity and and rocky minerality. The wine is ages for 14 months in French oak barrels (25% new) and 3 months in stainless steel. Produced using sustainable farming practices, indigenous yeasts, and bottled unfined / unfiltered.
St. Aubin is one Burgundy’s most overlooked and underrated appellations for luscious white wines. There are still plenty of hidden (and affordable) gems to be found here!

The latest allocation from famous wife & husband duo of Caroline Morey & Pierre-Yves Colin is finally here! Pierre-Yves Colin, and his wife Caroline Morey come from two Burgundian STAR families. Caroline is the daughter of legendary Chassagne-Montrachet producer, Jean-Marc Morey and Pierre is the eldest son of the famed Saint Aubin producer, Marc Colin. After working as the winemaker at his father’s domaine from 1994 to 2005, Pierre established his own domaine from vineyards he inherited from his family. Since then he has rapidly become a star in the Cote de Beaune and is now considered one of Burgundy’s top producers. His choice to use larger demi-muid barrels and eschew the use of battonnage, makes each one of his bottlings a clear expression of its terroir and a study in mineral-driven Chardonnay. As scary as it may seem, with each new vintage his wines seem to get better and better. This is not only one of the top domaines in Chassagne-Montrachet, this is one of the greatest winemakers and domaines in the world.
