2016 Bourgogne Blanc
The only cuvée that’s bigger than usual in 2016 because these parcels didn’t suffer from frost. Supplemented by a little very hard-hit (frost) St-Aubin parcel.Stony and uncompromising. Very much PYCM style. Not nearly ready. You might almost take this for a Chablis in structure. Extremely bracing.

2016 Saint-Aubin 'Le Banc'
Bright yellow-green. Lovely intensity and lift to the aromas of nectarine, lime and herbs. Pure, fruit-driven Chardonnay with lively mineral lift. Finishes with good length and sweetness.

2016 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru 'Cuvee Marguerite'
Blend of three parcels (including Les Champlots) and named after his grandmother, who died just before the frost.Very generous on the nose – unusually so for a PYCM wine. Then razor-sharp acidity on the palate; very much the house style! Intense impact on the palate but pretty dry on the end.

2016 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru 'Les Champlots'
Bright yellow-green. Aromas of nectarine, white pepper and herbs. Juicy, clean, smaller-scaled wine with a fine-grained texture and good energy. Spice and mineral flavors carry through to a perfumed finish featuring sneaky length. The crop here was barely one-quarter of normal, according to Colin, who added that his yields in Saint-Aubin ranged from 11 to 15 hectoliters per hectare in 2016.

2016 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru 'Les Chateniere'
Bright yellow. A musky touch of reduction to the aromas of white peach, nectarine, herbs and mint. Pliant, easygoing wine with surprising sweetness, but sound acidity intensifies the fruit and extends the finish.
