Domaine Rene Lequin-Colin
Dry white wine, 75cl. Full bodied 100% Chardonnay from Burgundy, France. 13.0% ABV. Organic Vegan
Lovely minerality characteristic of fine Chassagne. Fresh palate with lots of flavour. Toasty, textured and rich with great length. Peach skin and pear notes on the finish.
Tasting notes from the judges of the Sommelier Wine Awards:
'A layered and attractive nose of white flowers, butter, grapefruit, peaches and lemons, while the palate is very fresh and clean. An attractive style of Burgundy with some years ahead of it.' Sam Weatherill, Etch. by Steven Edwards. 'This has a creamy, buttery texture with yellow apples, white pepper and a slightly toasty aroma. Very complex and well-balanced.' Sara Rossi, Trinity Restaurant.
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.
