Domaine René Lequin-Colin 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Charrières

This lieu-dit is fascinating. Hemmed in by En Journoblot to the west, Les Perclos to the south and Les Houilières to the north. François' rows here are in the north-west corner, just several meters from Bâtard-Montrachet and Les Criots. He has only 0.2 ha here, but the vines are 65-70 years-old, which produce a mineral-laced wine with sweetness and length. François thinks so highly of this site (and the Clos Devant), that selection massale cuttings are made from here for new plantings in the rest of his vineyards. Of the two Chassagne-Montrachet climats, Les Charrières tends to be leaner and show more citrus than Clos Devant, which tends to be more capacious in body and richer on the palate.
