MonopoleSantenay « Clos de la Confrérie »
Age of the vines
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.
Clos de la Confrérie, a name inherited from neighbouring "Confrérie" or companionship is a unique parcel, nested in the heart of Santenay le haut with a western exposition. Our vines have reach their optimal age enabling us to have great level of concentration in our wines. The soil is composed with small gravels and clays in the upper part leaving place to more sandy soils when digging deeper.
