  • Appellation

    Santenay is located right south to Chassagne Montrachet and is the most southern village of Burgundy famous "Cote D'or" ("Golden Coast") region. The etymology of Santenay is most probably connected to the word "Sanctus" which refers to a sacred place before Christian era. The appellation, 140 ha of planted vines, is composed of three areas, one next to Chassagne, one around the village and one just south of the village. It is today mainly a Pinot Noir planted appellation however the Chardonnay are revealing high potential there.

  • Characteristic

    Harvest 2015 in Burgundy: a beautiful vintage ! During the 2015's vintage, the optimal maturity was reached and the healthy condition of the grapes was excellent ! After an early flowering with a hot and dry summer, watered by some good rains in August, the harvest was launched at the end of August. 2015 is a great vintage for all Burgundy.

  • Tasting note

    This Pinot Noir has a deep purple color with thin violet hues. On the nose, the bouquet is marked by notes of red and black fruits (blackcurrant, raspberry, blueberry). We also perceive aromas of spices (mint-pepper), floral (violet). On the mouth, this wine has a mellow attack, a round mid-palate, tender and rich, very aromatic. This wine is elegant like Volnay and powerful like a Pommard. That a robust wine, full-power. A wine of guard !
