    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.

2014
  • Characteristic

    After the dormant winter period, the vines returned to life in clement, warm and dry conditions. At the end of June, the weather changed, becoming cool and damp, but ripening continued nonetheless. The return of the sun and a northerly wind - the signature of September in the Bourgogne wine region - led to ideal conditions for the vines to reach full maturity. Picking began in mid-September in a serene and sunny atmosphere.

  • Wine-food pairing

    Delicate dishes such as meat or poultry tarts, veal or simmered beef, and vegetables (pot-au-feu)

  • Tasting note

    The nose is very pleasant with little notes of red and black fruits. The palate is very fresh, a little bit of minerality during the attack. Some crispy aromas of red and black fruits as well with spiciness very well integrated. The tannins are discreet and quite smooth.
