Tradition has it that at the doors of this vineyard, in the shape of a Clos, the ancestors of the Antoine and Cécile Lequin were sheltered to pass the time while they waited for inclement weather that forced them to be alert. The wine is one of the Domaine's most famous and one that benefits from bottle time. Beautiful to look at with orange tones and very little layer. On the nose it is very balanced, it is complex and everything is assembled. In the mouth it is delicious, it is pure red fruit, strawberries, the tannin is very fine, it has a wonderful acidity. When we tasted it, we said ... this we do not spit.

The Lequin family has been a family of winegrowers since 1604. Therefore, more than four centuries have contemplated the Domaine although it is for a few years that Antoine and Cécile, young but well-trained, have taken the reins of this Domaine de Santenay. Santenay is aN appellation within Burgundy to which more and more attention is paid everyday. Part of the Cote de Beaune, it is the appellation in which the Cote dOr ends and, curiously, it is an area much more of red wines than of white wines as it happens in neighboring Chassagne and Puligny. But let's not stray from the topic, we are to explain about the Domaine Louis Lequin. Santenay has always had a certain rustic character, but the Lequins work with little extraction and have the good taste to keep the bottles for us for a few years during which the wines are refined and allow the burgundy delicacy to emerge to the delight of lovers of great wines from the iron fist in a silk glove.

In the vineyard, they work in a respectful way, with natural fertilizers and without herbicides, using traditional tillage to remove grass when necessary. The vinification of the reds combines the whole bunch and the destemming in variable percentages and the aging is in French oak barrels with variable percentages of new oak depending on the cuvée. The whites are fermented in French oak barrels, which requires great sensitivity in winemaking so as not to overwhelm the wine with toasting. White wines are intense and sweet.
