Revelatory, Explosive Complexity
2015 Colin-Morey St. Aubin 1er Cru En Remilly Nicholas et Mathis

Posted by Ian McFadden

Pierre-Yves Colin turns out no shortage of wines from Burgundy's greatest sites - Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet, Meursault Perrieres, etc.

Yet savvy buyers flock toward his St. Aubin bottlings.

In no time Colin-Morey has been catapulted to the highest echelon of white Burgundy domaines.

His work in St. Aubin has been crucial in establishing the domaine's cult status, and the En Remilly is their preeminent wine from the village.

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 such riveting intensity.

Colin-Morey makes two bottling 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.

The 2015s at Colin-Morey are eye-opening. The wines combine a tactile grip and density with a bright punchy energy. The 2015 Nicholas et Mathis amazes with its salty and stony minerality and soaring floral and citrus notes. There's a rigorous, finely etched quality that adds even more excitement.

I'll wrap this up. Please be warned that each time we've offered En Remilly Nicholas et Mathis it's quickly sold out. People speak about Colin-Morey's wines in the same hushed way that they speak of Coche-Dury and Jean-Marc Roulot. The En Remilly Nicholas et Mathis has a huge following that cuts across a huge cross section of wine lovers - blue chip collectors, wine geeks, value hunters, etc. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
