Update 7.1.2010(6.1.2010)billn

2007 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, St.Aubin Le Blanc
Opened a little too cold, there is only a little well judged toast aroma. As it warms in the glass it expends with an undertow of cream and hints of citrus. Fresh, waxy-smooth and, aided by a kick of smooth acidity it is intense and flavourful in the mid-palate. I like this a lot – it wasn’t particularly cheap for a villages St.Aubin at 33 Swiss francs, but it is a far from cheap performance. I’d drink these young to enjoy the mix of suppleness and and structure. Lovely.
Rebuy – Yes

(Bonus marks for correctly guessing the DVD on which the cork ‘sits’…)

    Hi Bill,

    Happy New Year & happy 2010 tasting ! Here’s to our 2010 vendange idc.

    Thanks for this. P-Y C-M is someone I’ve become increasingly interested in for c 18 months. All bought untasted, I am cellaring a case of the 2006 Chassagne PC Caillerets and bought 3 bottles each of his 2007 Puligny PC Champ Gains & Meursault PC Poruzots from the Chassagne cave with my wages on my final day on the Cote after the 2009 vendange.

    I am planning to ‘have a go’ at his St Aubins, Pernand Sous Fretille (loved that terroir last September with famille Dubreuil-Fontaine) and B Blanc with next spare cash, assuming I can find those wines – preferably 07 to 08. He seems to have garnered strong critical claim & I like what I read of his winemaking practices.

    Any plans for a profile on him, or come to that, Vincent Dancer ? Courtesy of a bad cold I didn’t open too much over Xmas & New Year but, against my principles of early drinking, I really did enjoy Dancer’s 2007 Chassagne La Romanee a great deal – one of the best white burgs I’ve had in a good long while. Super lemon, limes & pink grapefruit type flavours, minimal but subtle oak influence, lovely stony minerality & that sort of ‘Starburst’ / ‘Opal Fruit’ citrus sweets acidity that makes one want to keep reaching for another taste. Lasted well in the fridge over 2/3 days.

    Your a bit of a photographer aren’t you ? I thought Vincent’s last blog snow scene photos were fantastic. Looking forward to saying ‘bonjour’ to him next week – assuming he’s at J&B’s 2008 Burg en primeur London tasting . He has been last few years – comes across as a very likeable unassuming guy.

    No idea what that DVD is 😉

      Bonne nouvelle année Mark!

      Yes, I’ve a limited experience of PYCM, which I should clearly redress as all the wines I’ve so far tasted have been excellent++. I understand ABVintners have exclusivity in the UK…

      You reminded me that I should make a link in the diary to Mr Dancer’s latest photos – I love the grape flambé!

      Cheers, Bill

    don’t you find a little too much oak on PYCM wines in general ? It does not disturb me that much (I trained my tasted buds in California in my early years 🙂 ) but I find it sometimes a little borderline.

      Hi Filippo,
      From my small sample – no. The St.Aubin had a definite toast aroma – but toasted bread rather than the high-toast oak that I personally dislike as it can even tend to a burnt rubber smell in whites. Certainly the flavours of this wine were not particularly about oak.
      Hope this helps & Cheers
