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 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot

There are 19 climats which make up Morgeot and the site itself is nearly one-fifth of the total appellation, so there is a lot of variety in quality from this 1er Cru site. François’ rows are in “Tête du Clos” and “Les Grands Clos,” directly in the mid-slope and center of Morgeot. His rows in “Les Grands Clos” are directly opposite the Abbey ruins, across the small vineyard street, in the climat “Morgeot.” François has both chardonnay (0.32ha) and pinot noir (0.32 ha) planted here. The vines in “Tête du Clos” were planted in 1971 and the vines in “Les Grands Clos” were planted in 1987. This Morgeot is spicier than Lequin’s Vergers and it has more body as well. It displays a velvety texture and impressive length.
