Domaine René Lequin-Colin 2016 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru

Only two and half barrels were made in the 2014 vintage, with about 35% new oak in the blend. François has two semi-contiguous parcels here, totaling 0.13 ha, both in the northwest corner of the Cru. One parcel has rows that run north to south along the border of Le Montrachet to the west, and Les Criots to the south, as the vineyard slopes toward Criots in this part of Bâtard. The other parcel is on edge of this slope with rows running east to west with the western-most vines adjoining the boarder to Le Montrachet. This wine is what you’d want in Grand Cru chardonnay: it’s linear but full, juicy yet long, flavorful and compelling.
