93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is showing especially well. As usual, it's a blend of fruit from Aloxe and Pernand, but Colin told me that he is now sourcing an additional parcel from Pernand, so the blend has changed. He also added that he is picking a touch later, seeking greater plenitude. The result is a very successful wine that unfurls in the glass with a classy bouquet of citrus oil, subtle spices, crisp green apple, nutmeg and beeswax. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and layered, with excellent concentration, racy acids and a chalky, phenolic finish. This might be Pierre-Yves Colin's finest Corton-Charlemagne to date.

A soaring, cool and pretty nose features notes of green apple, floral, mineral reduction and plenty of citrus elements. While the medium weight flavors are not super-dense they still manage to convey evident power on the stony, bone dry and impressively complex, firm and persistent finish. Patience required.
