Domaine René Lequin-Colin

Burgundy | Côte de Beaune | Santenay

The wines of this domaine emphasize purity and transparency. From 1er and grand cru holdings in Santenay and Chassagne-Montrachet, vigneron François Lequin lets each site speak in the clearest possible voice through organic farming and “a small hand” in the cellar. There is a bright freshness to the wines, from the Retour aux Racines that is a complete departure from basic Bourgogne Blanc to the regal, but never overbearing Bâtard-Montrachet. The pinot noirs are charming and fruit-driven, marked by drinkability and finesse. Altogether, the Lequin-Colin range represents a rare opportunity to tap into tremendous quality and value in Burgundy.

Domaine René Lequin-Colin 2020 Bourgogne Chardonnay "Retour aux Racines"

100% from the “Lavau” parcel in Santenay, where there is a predominance of chalk in the soil and very little topsoil, this chardonnay is fermented in 100% oak, with 10-20% new from Chassin and Rousseau coopers. The wine is 12 months in oak and 3 months in tank after malolactic and final racking off the fine lees before bottling. The wine is unfined and unfiltered and complete depature form the basic Bourgogne Chardonnay.
