Lequin-Colin, Bourgogne Chardonnay, Back to the Roots, 2020 as featured by Tamlyn Currin, jancisrobinson.com

14th October 2022

We have always championed this barrel fermented white burgundy. Here’s praise from Tamlyn Currin of jancisrobinson.com


""Broad, honeysuckle, clementine and spices on the nose. Juicy fruit, drawing from the clementine on the nose, adding Seville-orange zest, and the broad brushstroke of spice taking on the more precise flavours of liquorice, cinnamon, clove. Curved and rich in a way that reminds me a bit of South African Chenin. A sense of richness despite the relatively low alcohol. This is rather unusual for a Bourgogne, but very rewarding, long and VGV. 17/20, Drink 2022-2026"

Lequin-Colin, Bourgogne Chardonnay, Back to the Roots, 2020

Named because François Lequin deliberately gives this wine a traditional style of vinification: it's 100%  barrel fermented, with 10% new oak; and given regular lees stirring to develop texture and breadth. Open, clean and delicately perfumed. Lovely burst of fresh citrus, with splendid ripeness - there's almost a hint of stone fruit. Attractive fat and buttery, yet with a long fresh finish. As usual, this punches far above its generic Bourgogne Chardonnay label. Now-2025
