Domaine René Lequin-Colin 2016 Bourgogne Chardonnay

This is the only wine in the Lequin-Colin collection that isn’t 100% barrel fermented. It is 50% in tank and 50% in barrel, of which 10% was new in Chassin and Rousseau French oak, so there is a total of 5% new oak on this everyday chardonnay. The grapes come from plots in Santenay: “Lavau” near the village, and “Corpeau” which is located below the village of Puligny-Montrachet. The grapes from the plot “Corpeau” are purchased from organic producer friends of François, but François manages the viticulture, the harvest and the ultimate pressing and winemaking. The result is a fresh, citrusy and long chardonnay squarely in the AOC of Burgundy, but without pretense or artifice.
