TN: 2010 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Baudines

Last night, amidst a bevy of excellent wines including the '68 Conterno Monfortino, I managed to focus on this one enough to have some words.
First '10 PYCM for me.

  • 2010 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Baudines - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru (10/16/2012)
    It was actually quite tight and not giving much at first. Decanted a bit. Honey and slate. Some oak and a rather rich, but one dimensional texture in the mouth right now. I wanted more acid initially, but that could have been due to this following the tight and lively bubbles of the 2005 Cedric Bouchard. There’s a nice dryness here and some citrus fruit and acid show in time. The revisit taste (Rowdystyle) later in the night after 3 hours in decanter was the best taste. Young, but poised to be really special down the road a bit.

It could definitely use more acidity. I think all their chassange have great texture but miss that lift on the back end. The meursault in 2010 have been insanely good though

Yeah, I thought it was a bit thick and wanted some more acid, others thought it was fine. Your texture comment is right on. Nice wine, though, and glad to have more.

Hi Dennis,
Thanks for the note on this; I had a similar experience with the Champs Gains in that it really needed some time in the decanter to open up, but once it did, it was wonderful; if you are looking for more acid, the 2010 Meursault Genevrieres is rockin good; would love to hear more about how the '68 Conterno showed, hopefully that was a great experience.

Thanks Henry. The Conterno was very Burgundian to me, that’s what I’d say having drank more aged Burgundy than Barolo.
There’s that point were well-aged wines being to show the same characteristics after 40 years and that was the case here.
Delicate, yet intense,leathery, with a decent bit of acid. It was a treat.

that genevrieres is awesome. I want to open one this weekend!
