Wine of the Week!

Pierre Yves Colin-Morey Aligot_.jpg

-I cried because I had no shoes, 

until I met a man who had never tried Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey.

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Aligoté

Is this the greatest bottle of Aligoté made? For anyone who is lucky enough to have tasted this hard to find bottle from Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey (PYCM), they will say “hell yeah it is!!”

Aligote is Burgundy’s “other white wine” as it has long lived in Chardonnay’s ominous shadow. Yet of late, it is finally garnering the respect and attention it deserves. As Burgundy prices continue to soar it is with Aligote where you will find high quality wines at relatively affordable prices. It is fast becoming Burgundy’s worst kept secret. The grape can be quite alluring as it offers wines of brilliant acidity, ripe fruit and mineral expression. Aligoté is what all the cool kids are drinking. 

Pierre-Yves Colin is a superstar in Burgundy. He is the owner and son of famed Burgundy winegrower, Marc Colin. He was the winemaker at his dad’s estate until he left to start his own Domaine. PYCM has only been around since 2006, and in that time its reputation has exploded. Pierre-Yves Colin is now considered one of the greatest winemakers not only in Burgundy but the world. So when he decided to turn attention to the oft dismissed Aligoté the results were magical. His offers a profound balancing act of nervy tension and beaming fruit. As expected it speaks of the vineyard and the season in which it was grown.


Questions of our Time

Last Week's Results: The people have spoken and they are correct, Speed Walking is The Most Boring Olympic Sport there is. Sitting through 20 kilometers of this event is excruciating. What is surprising is people really love Rhythmic Gymnastics and Archery as we didn’t receive a single vote for either. Gotta love those hoops and arrows.

Speed Walking 52%

Dressage 21%

Javelin Catch 19%

Shot Put 8%
