Domaine René Lequin-Colin 2019 Santenay Les Charmes

Lieu-dit Les Charmes lies just below the 1er Cru Clos Rousseau, though its terroir imprint is markedly different. Les Charmes is characterized by well draining red soils, composed of red clay and rocky limestone, while the vineyard is traditionally considered a chardonnay terroir, this soil composition provides consistently marked levels of acidity in pinot noir, even in warmer vintages. This results in a bright, finessed expression that is counter to the Santenay stereotype of blockier structured wines. Lequin follows a similar cellar program for this wine as he does for other Santenay Rouge – fermenting with native yeasts in barrique, with 20% new oak, followed by 12 months of elevage in barrels and an additional 3 months in stainless prior to bottling.
