Lot #290. Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet Cailleret 2016

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93 ST.
". . . Made from very old, low-yielding vines: Bright, light yellow-green. Pungently mineral scents of lime zest, white flowers, crushed rock, anise, caraway seed and mint. At once vibrant and thick, with flavors of underripe pineapple and grapefruit pith displaying terrific energy and lift. This beauty expanded with air to reveal a silkier texture, outstanding purity and a captivating crushed-chalk dustiness. Incidentally, Pierre-Yves Colin told me that he's currently enjoying white wines from his 2003 through 2006 vintages at home - 'but nothing younger than that.'" Vinous, Sep 2018
Provenance: The Foxy Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
