Extreme Purity: 2017 Colin-Morey St. Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly Nicholas et Mathis

Posted by Ian McFadden

It wouldn't be out of line to say that Pierre-Yves Colin's work in St. Aubin has been crucial in establishing the domaine's cult status.

This speaks volumes about how impressive his work in St. Aubin is. Colin has holdings in Grand Crus and top 1er Crus yet savvy buyers hunt the En Remilly bottlings down with the same fervor as the Chevalier-Montrachet.

Seasoned Burgundy buyers have long sought out En Remilly for the ridiculous quality-to-price ratio it delivers. Colin-Morey's wines from En Remilly are stunning. They serve as exemplars of Colin-Morey's incredible ability to render the Chardonnay grape with such purity and riveting intensity.

I do not doubt that there will be an incredible amount of interest in the 2017 En Remilly Nicholas-Mathis. Word is clearly out that this is a stunning white Burgundy vintage. The 2017s are radiant, supremely balanced, and charming beyond description.

Even in the context of the strong 2017 vintage, Colin-Morey's wines stand out. They are crystal clear with verve and exacting focus.

Colin-Morey makes two bottlings from En Remilly. Nicholas et Mathis is the rarer of the two bottlings. It's situated near the Grand Cru site of Chevalier-Montrachet. Compared to Colin-Morey's basic En Remilly, Nicholas et Mathis is deeper and more textural.

In 2017, the Nicholas et Mathis is incredibly exciting. You get a tension-filled and finely etched structure with soaring floral and citrus notes and a backbone of stony minerality.

I'm going to wrap this up. Every time that we've offered the En Remilly Nicholas et Mathis we've been hit by a nearly overwhelming flood of orders. I expect that things will be even worse with the 2017 vintage. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
