Domaine René Lequin-Colin 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet "Les Charrières"
This lieu-dit is fascinating. Hemmed in by “En Journoblot” to the west “Les Perclos” to the south and “Les Houilières” to the north, François rows are in the north-west corner, just several meters from Bâtard-Montrachet and Les Criots. He has only .2 ha here, but the vines are 65-70 years-old, which produce a minerally-lace wine with sweetness and length. François thinks so highly of this site (and the Clos Devant), that selection massale cuttings are made from here for new plantings in the rest of his vineyards. Of the two Chassagne-Montrachet climats, Les Charrières is leaner and shows more citrus than Clos Devant, which is more capacious in body and richer on the palate.
