Product description

Château de Santenay is one of Burgundy's largest wine estates. The majestic castle dates from the 9th century and was owned by Philippe le Hardi, Duke of Burgundy, for a period of time in the 14th century. He issued the edict that established monocépage viticulture in Burgundy, resulting in the substitution of Pinot Noir for Gamay.  Château de Santenay owns 90 hectares of vineyards, spread over the Côte d'Or and the Côte Chalonnaise.  In total, they make wine in 14 appellations, including Mercurey, Aloxe-Corton, Santenay, Pommard, and Saint-Aubin.  Since 2004, the château has been Terra Vitis certified.

In the glass, the Santenay Bourgogne Chardonnay vieilles vignes has a bright, straw-yellow color with a rich, expressive nose with notes of white blossom, citrus, and a light woody touch. The attack is lively, with a pleasant acidity, the taste balanced, subtle, and elegant. A very pleasant, elegant, and handsome glass of wine coming from old vines (vieilles vignes) where 50% is fermented and aged in French oak barriques.

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast     Produced from a small parcel of purchased grapes, this wine is poised between richness and good acidity.  Its crisp texture is to the fore, backed up by an opulent layer of pear and apple flavors. At the end, it offers a tang of acidity and zesty lemon. Drink the wine from 2021.
