Location
Located in the Côte d’Or department at the southern extremity of the Côte de Beaune, the 392 ha of Santenay’s vines cover the lower slopes of the Mont-de-Sène, running 15 km in length.
Soil The vines grow on southeast-facing slopes in soil composed of brown limestone with fractionated subsoil dating back to the Middle and Lower Jurassic.
Grape variety 100 % Pinot Noir.
Vinification Vinification takes place in temperature-controlled open vats (28/30°C) with regular punching of the cap followed by 12 to 14 months ageing in oak barrels with at most 15% new oak.
Robe Beautiful ruby red with cherry coloured highlights.
Nose The first nose is all fruit, a complex blend of strawberry and raspberry, delicately underpinned by vegetal notes of moss and humus.
Palate Soft and delectable on the palate, this fleshy wine offers harmonious balance and a subtle, fruity finish.
Serve with Ideal with slow-cooked dishes such as lamb shank braised in honey, osso buco or boiled beef with vegetables. Lacquered or caramelized Asian poultry dishes would be a fine match. When it comes to cheese, mild varieties such as Brie de Meaux, Pont-l’Evêque or the local Cîteaux are good choices.
Serve at 14 to 16°C.
Cellaring potential From 3 to 7 years.
