Domaine René Lequin-Colin 2014 Santenay "Sous la Roche"
“Sous la Roche” means “under the rock” and this lieu dit of Santenay is in eye-site of the tasting room of the domaine and immediately under the tree line of the vineyards, in the same line as the site Comme Dessus. Being so situated, it seems obvious that the site would be spare in topsoil and abundant in chalk, and so it is. There is more structure to this wine because of it and also a touch more reduction due to the active lime composition in the soil. 15% new oak was used in the fermentation. Chardonnay from Santenay is not a common wine in Burgundy, but it offers many of the characteristics of similar lieu dit wines from more recognizable villages: elegance, structure, length. These are not to be missed.
