Name: Louis Lequin Address: 1, Rue du Pasquier de Pont - Santenay (France) Web Site: www.louis-lequin.com/English/Index.htm
The Louis Lequin Domain has a surface of 7 hectares, distributed through the villages of Santenay, Chassagne- Montrachet, Pommard, Corton and Nuits Saint Georges. Two vine varieties are cultivated: Pinot Noir for the red wines and Chardonnay for the white wines.
I prune the Pinot Noir vines according to the Cordon de Royat method; this allows me to limit the yield, to aerate the vine and to give more sunlight to the grapes. These factors give greater grape maturity, more colour and more flavour.
