Lequin-Colin, Bourgogne Pinot Noir, 2019
All the wine goes into barrel but only 10% new. Bottled under screw cap, this wine is all about the fruit. It smells so ripe and friendly; and it doesn't let you down, ripe and plump, tasting of black cherries and plums. A smudge of tannin... Read More

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!...Discover More

Lequin-Colin, Bourgogne Pinot Noir, 2019
All the wine goes into barrel but only 10% new. Bottled under screw cap, this wine is all about the fruit. It smells so ripe and friendly; and it doesn't let you down, ripe and plump, tasting of black cherries and plums. A smudge of tannin and a touch of earthiness give it just that much more interest too. Great value. Now-2025
Full screwcapped bottle (how many of them do you see in Burgundy?) a very modest 1,168 g. '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!
"Pale garnet. Gentle, flattering nose that's all fruit. Very pure and nicely balanced fruit at that, with just a little chew on the finish but it's already a modest pleasure to drink. Too light to pair with any food that's too emphatic but it's a joy, and would serve as a red-wine aperitif. Feather-light flattery on the palate. VVGV Drink 2021–2024 16.5/20, Jancis Robinson, October 2021"
SVS is one of the nicest merchants to deal with. Fabulous choices of producer and wines, friendly cheerful service, keen prices and boundless enthusiasm. Top wine critics (eg Jancis Robinson) often rave about the SVS portfolio of wines. Simon and his team also have a 'philanthropic' soft spot for South African wines where the whole wine trade suffered not just an export ban on wine but a domestic one too for a while. You cannot go wrong with any wine in the portfolio. Buy with confidence.Read More
