Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey is a renowned winery located in Chassagne-Montrachet, a subregion of Burgundy's Côte de Beaune. This esteemed producer is recognized for its exceptional Chardonnay wines, with a significant portion of its vineyards situated in Saint-Aubin. The estate was founded in 2005 by Pierre-Yves Colin and Catherine Morey, both offspring of esteemed winemakers in Burgundy. Previously, Colin had served as the winemaker at his family's winery since 1995. In 2001, he embarked on a négociant venture with his wife. Eventually, in 2005, Colin departed from the family estate to establish his own label, retaining a six-hectare (15-acre) portion of the Colin vineyards, while the remaining parcels were retained by his siblings (Caroline, Joseph and Damien) who currently manage Domaine Marc Colin. Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey possesses vineyard holdings in several premier cru sites in Saint-Aubin and Chassagne-Montrachet, including Chatèniere, Champlots, Remilly, Chenevottes and Caillerets. Furthermore, the domaine procures grapes to produce wines from various grand cru vineyards, notably Bâtard-Montrachet and Corton-Charlemagne. While the estate primarily focuses on crafting exceptional Chardonnay, it also produces a smaller quantity of Pinot Noir sourced from Saint-Aubin and Santenay. In the winery, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey avoids battonage, instead favouring extended contact with the lees and barrel aging. The wines are bottled without filtration and often without fining, showcasing the pure expression of the vineyards and the winemaker's meticulous craftsmanship.

Bourgogne Aligote wine is a type of white wine produced in the Burgundy region of France. It is made from the Aligote grape, which is native to Burgundy. While Chardonnay is the predominant white grape in the region, Bourgogne Aligote offers a refreshing alternative. These wines are known for their lively acidity, crispness and citrus flavors. They often have a subtle mineral character and can be enjoyed on their own or paired with seafood and light dishes. Bourgogne Aligote wines are highly regarded for their quality and provide a distinct white wine experience from Burgundy.

This particular parcel is located in Hautes Côtes de Beaune and consists of 50-year-old vines with a grape variety that has a slightly rosé skin. The wine is aged in 350-liter barrels. It is the only wine in the range that undergoes full malolactic fermentation. The bottling is scheduled for January, along with the St. Aubins.

The Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Bourgogne Aligote 2020 is an enchanting white wine that exemplifies the winemaker's commitment to creating exceptional expressions of the Aligote grape. On the nose, this wine presents a lively combination of crisp green apples, tangy lemon and delicate white flowers. These alluring aromas create an inviting and invigorating experience. The first sip reveals a burst of lively citrus flavors, including tangy lemon and juicy grapefruit. These vibrant flavors are complemented by hints of green apple and a subtle touch of minerality, contributing to the wine's depth and complexity. Impressing with its well-balanced acidity, the Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Bourgogne Aligote 2021 offers a refreshing and revitalizing sensation on the palate. Its medium body and smooth texture make it a delightful choice for various occasions. As the wine lingers, it concludes with a clean and crisp finish.
