2019 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Santenay Comme Dessus Blanc
This bright and fresh White Burgundy is quite Chassagne-like on the palate, as its bright acidity and dusty minerality add a layer of freshness to the wine’s rich and round palate. The wine is aged for three months in steel and 14 months in French oak barrels (25% new) prior to bottling. This is a great value!
Santenay is the Côte de Beaune’s most southerly wine-producing appellation. Wines from Santenay are generally red, so this unique Chardonnay is a tasty exception!

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.
