2015 Chateau de la Cree Santenay Monopole 'Clos de la Confrérie' Pinot Noir
The southernmost village within the Côte d’Or, Santenay is located just south of Chassagne Montrachet. Santenay’s etymology probably derives from the Latin word “Sanctus,” implying a place considered sacred even before the Christian era. Clos de la Confrérie is our own unique “Monopole” parcel, nestled in the heart of Santenay-le-Haut. Its western exposure, 25 to 30-year old vines, and terroir of gravelly-clay soil and sandy subsoil produces concentrated Pinot Noirs of great structure and density, with a distinctive spiciness.
Showcasing an array of red fruit, the 2015 Clos de la Confrérie Pinot Noir is extremely expressive on the nose. The palate is soft and elegant displaying dark raspberry and cherry flavors. The finish is long and opulent with hints of baking spices. It is appealing now but will enhance with proper cellaring over the next 3-5 years.*Price Does Not Include Gift Box
