René Lequin Colin Santenay 'Les Charmes' 2017
Few grapes absorb the essence of the place where they grow, as much as Pinot Noir. This very characteristic is part of the explanation for the formidable reputation that Burgundy wines have enjoyed over the centuries. A fame that is still intact and is reflected by the generally high price level in this small part of France. Francois Colins Santenay Les Charmes gets flavor from the clay and the limestone that dominates the small parcel at the southern end of the municipality where the vines grow. While the clay soil provides a deeper profile with more fruit and gravity, the limestone contributes with finesse and texture. The result is an elegant and complex burgundy with tones of cherry, forest floor and mushrooms, held in place by a ripe acid.
Pure Pinot Noir harvested when the acid level is perfect. The yield per hectare is just 55 hectolitres. from the 50-year-old canes.
