Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "Les Champlots" 2021


We have 2 in stock (Inventory is live and accurate)

  • Land: Saint-Aubin, a charming village tucked away in the Cote de Beaune, provides the scenic backdrop for Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey's vineyards. Known for its steep, limestone-rich hills that challenge both vignerons and vines, Saint-Aubin produces wines with a striking mineral complexity and vibrant acidity. The "Les Champlots" vineyard, perched within this lesser-known but highly valued appellation, benefits from an ideal exposure and soil composition that contribute to the nuanced expression found in the wines from this area.
  • Wine: The 2021 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru "Les Champlots" is a prime example of Pierre-Yves Colin's mastery in winemaking. Crafted with grapes from old vines that translate the limestone-rich soils into the glass, this wine undergoes fermentation and aging in larger demi-muid barrels, which enhances its elegant structure without overshadowing the varietal's vibrant fruit and mineral core. The long élevage adds layers of complexity, resulting in a wine that is both profound and impeccably balanced.
  • People: Pierre-Yves Colin, the eldest son of Marc Colin, has established himself as one of the most revered producers in Burgundy since founding his own domaine in 2004 with his wife, Caroline Morey. Known for his meticulous attention to detail and minimal interventionist approach, Colin's winemaking philosophy focuses on expressing the nuanced differences of each vineyard parcel. His commitment to traditional methods, combined with innovative aging techniques, ensures that each bottle offers a true expression of its terroir.

Burgundy in eastern France is home to multiple subregions, but the Cote d'Or is home to many of the world's most expensive wines. Whites made from Chardonnay are rich yet minerally, and Pinot Noir makes silky reds. Centuries of winemaking have resukted in every plot being recognized and scrutinized; this is the capital of terroir.


Chardonnay, one of the world's most versatile and beloved white grape varieties, showcases a remarkable spectrum of styles, from the lean, mineral-driven expressions of Chablis in France to the rich, buttery, and oak-aged versions from California's Napa Valley. Its adaptability extends to cooler climates such as Burgundy, where it achieves elegance and complexity, and to regions like Australia's Yarra Valley, known for producing vibrant and fruit-forward renditions. This grape's ability to reflect its terroir, coupled with winemaking techniques, results in a wide array of profiles, including unoaked, crisp varieties with apple and citrus notes, to full-bodied wines with tropical fruit flavors and creamy textures.
