Lequin-Colin, Chassagne-Montrachet, 1er Cru Les Caillerets, 2016

In Stock Now!

We offer this vintage after vintage as it combines honeyed and juicy flavour with the mineral raciness of a very stony vineyard. The name of this 1er cru originates from "cailloux"; its calcareous soil
is full of stones and known to produce wine with a steely elegance. Toasty and citrussy, well-textured, fat, tense and precise. Very long. Now-2024

The chalky, calcareous soils of this well-sited vineyard on the slope above the village produce the finest Premier Cru in Francois Lequin’s cellar. 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. Relaxed and charming, François Lequin makes a well presented range of clean, precise and expressive wines. François's wines are all organically certified but he doesn't want to announce them as such on the labels as he wants them to sell on their own merits, not their organic status.
