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.
Château de la Crée, producing wine since the 15th century, invites you to taste the "Les Tourelles de la Crée" wines, which are created from the best "Terroirs" in Burgundy. Our Burgundy appellations produce wines with refined character and soft structure. Our Santenay Premier Cru is a blend our Santenay Premier Cru "Gravières" and our Santenay "Passe-Temps".
