Burgundy

The Burgundy Pyramid Making sense of the complexity of the complexity of Burgundy isn’t easy. Though Burgundy only comprises 5% of France’s vineyard area, it holds 100 different Appellations, 25% of the entire French total.  There are no less than 5,000 growers, 85% of whom own less than 10 hectares, and four fifths of them make wine. To make matters worse, the...

René Lequin-Colin

René Lequin-Colin Santenay, France This 9 hectare family domaine, which dates back over 300 years, has a lovely range of vineyards, deriving from the marital conjoining of Lequins from Santenay and Colins from Chassagne-Montrachet. We think he makes no less than seventeen wines, though some in very small quantities, for example just one specially made small barrel of Batard-Montrachet!...

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is one of the most-widely planted varieties in the world. Arguably not the most characterful grape, hence its common ageing in oak, yet at its pinnacle in Burgundy it produces some of the greatest (and certainly most expensive) white wines in the world. Look out for unoaked Chardonnay, it can make a pleasant change, and usually goes down very well with all those people who say they...

We get super excited when Jancis Robinson (or one of her team) write about our wine! Voted the world's most influential wine critic in polls in the US, France and internationally in 2018, Jancis views herself as a wine writer rather than a wine critic. She writes daily for JancisRobinson.com and weekly for the Financial Times. She is founder-editor of The Oxford Companion to Wine,...

Lequin-Colin, Bourgogne Chardonnay, 2018

From fruit grown in vineyards close to François Lequin's home village of Santenay, this is fermented 50% in tank and 50% in barrel, with 10% new oak, bottled under screw cap. Our go-to white Burgundy: citrussy with hints of almonds; ripe and generous fruit. Now-2024

"Smells almost like a Mâconnais white. Good roundness on the end. Doesn't have Côte d'Or savour but it's nicely put together. Drink 2020-2023, 15.5/20" Jancis Robinson MW, 13th January 2020

All François's wines are now organically certified, though he chooses not to state as such on the labels as he wants them to sell on their own merits, not just because of a green symbol!

"François Lequin's Chardonnay (the 13th consecutive vintage we have shipped) was one of the first wines I purchased after joining SVS and it is now ever present in my wine rack. It combines the aristocratic traditions of Burgundy with a youthful freshness. I love the vibrant citrus flavours along with the more complex spice notes from partial barrel fermentation", Michael Peet SVS

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
