Domaine René Lequin-Colin 2014 Santenay "Les Hates"

Of the two Santenay chardonnays, this is the more generous, and it’s all based in the soil. “Les Hates” is a lieu dit in the mid-slope of the Côte, sandwiched between the Premier Cru sites of Beaurepaire (which is just beneath “Sous la Roche”) and the more famous 1er Cru Santenay sites of Passetemps, Beauregard, Clos des Mouches and Clos Faubard. Here, there is more topsoil which creats a richer, longer wine. But being in the middle of the slope also lends a substructure of thinner, chalkier layers than “Sous la Roche,” adding mineral structure to the fruitiness.
