After leaving his family domaine in 2005, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey has established himself as one of the rising stars of Burgundy. Pierre-Yves has built a strong reputation for crafting exquisite white Burgundy that display energy and vitality. The white wines are whole bunch pressed, fermented with natural yeasts, aged on lees for up to 18 months in mostly in 350 litre barrels with no lees stirring and no filtration. The corks used come from one tiny supplier and are extra long and extra wide (55mm x 25mm) for the village, 1er cru and Grand cru wines and are untreated with no paraffin and the bottles are then sealed with soft wax to ensure no problems with premature oxidation. The resulting wines are built to age classically up to 10 years or more.

The Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Santenay 1er Cru Gravieres Rouge isn't your typical light-bodied Pinot Noir, but instead has some real heft and length to it.

50-year-old vines above limestone and gravel marl are the source for this wonderful Pinot, giving it richness and full flavours across a broad spectrum. There's a long roll call of characters on display, such as dark cherry, pepper, black tea, earth, spice and some herbal hints, with more than the expected level of tannin, so there's some grip in the mouth.

This is definitely a wine that will benefit from some patience in order to reveal itself fully.

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with High acidity and Medium tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
