Domaine des Crêts 2020 Mâcon-Chardonnay Climat "L`Echenault de Serre"

“L’Echenault de Serre” is the younger of the two parcels that Lequin has in Ozenay. Very loosely translated, the climat name means “where the rainwater runs down to the serfs,” which describes the situation of this site, below “En Bout,” where there is a bit more clay in the soil. This is 100% barrel fermented in Chassin and Rousseau barrels, of which ~10% are new. Because of the higher clay content here, the wine shows more fleshiness and roundness than the climat “En Bout,” but it is by no means a rich-styled Mâcon. L’Echenault was the top-rated Mâcon in La Revue du vin de France in its inaugural year.
