Domaine René Lequin-Colin Bourgogne Blanc 'Back To The Roots' 2020, Burgundy, France
Domaine Rene Lequin-Colin
Dry white wine, 75cl. Medium bodied 100% Chardonnay from Burgundy, France. 12.5% ABV. Organic Vegetarian
Open nose, citrus with a hint of toast. Lovely ripe fruit, attractively fat, round and rich with a refreshing citrusy finish. This is a classy wine that is as good as Bourgogne Blanc gets and is often mistaken for a loftier Burgundy. One of our customers favourites.
Producer Profile Domaine René Lequin-Colin
The Lequin family comes from a long lineage of Burgundian producers, their presence in Santenay dates back to 1679. The first vintage of Lequin-Colin arrived in 1976, a few years after the marriage of René Lequin and Josette Colin, a descendant of a long lineage of wine makers from Chassagne-Montrachet. Today, their son François looks after the 9 hectares of vines stretching across Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet, Pommard and Corton. Devoted to authenticity and quality, the Lequin-Colin vineyard has been ploughed since 1997 and organically farmed since 2009. Their meticulous methods in the vineyards and winery yield perfumed and full bodied wines that can be enjoyed young expressing fresh fruit aromas, or cellar aged for more powerful matured flavours.
