Domaine René Lequin-Colin 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Caillerets"

Caillerets is generally considered one of Chassagne-Montrachet’s top 1er Crus, as it benefits from ideal hillside exposure with very rocky chalk topsoil. In fact, the word “Caillerets” comes from the word “Caille” meaning “stones.” Lequin’s rows total 0.22 ha and are located in the southwest corner of the climat, bordering “Les Champs Gain” to the east and “Les Fairendes” to the south (“Les Fairendes” is one of the 1er Cru climats which make up “Morgeot”). Undoubtedly, this is François’ most impressive chardonnay in the 1er Cru range. It has both an impressive structure and acidity coupled with layers of flavor and a silky texture.
