Domaine René Lequin-Colin Santenay 1er Cru La Comme 2018, Burgundy, France
Domaine Rene Lequin-Colin
Dry red wine, 75cl. Medium bodied 100% Pinot Noir from Burgundy, France. 13.5% ABV. Organic Vegan
This vineyard is located at the east corner of Santenay near Chassagne-Montrachet and the vines are over 45 years old. There is more limestone here than clay giving a great fruity character with structure and finesse to the wines. This Premier Cru Pinot Noir has a deep purple colour with hints of violet, with aromas of ripe raspberries, strawberries and cherries on the nose. The round and soft palate with elegant and silky tannins offers red berry fruit with a touch of vanilla, underbrush and exotic spices leading to a charming long finish.
Producer Profile Domaine René Lequin-Colin
The Lequin family comes from a long lineage of Burgundian producers, their presence in Santenay dating back to 1679. The first vintage of Lequin-Colin arrived in 1976, a few years after the marriage of René Lequin and Josette Colin, herself 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.
