2015 Maison Evenstad Santenay Premier Cru Beaurepaire Chardonnay
Santenay is located south of Chassagne-Montrachet and is the most southern village of Burgundy’s famous Côte d’Or region. The appellation, 140 hectares of planted vines, is composed of three main parcels, one next to Chassagne, one around the village of Santenay and one just south of the village. The Beaurepaire vineyard showcases Santenay’s potential for beautiful white wines that offer elegance and mineral-rich complexity. It is one of our favorite vineyards for high-quality Chardonnay in Santenay.
On approach, the 2015 Premier Cru Beaurepaire opens with clean and complex layers of orange blossoms and minerality. On the palate, rich layers of toast and hazelnut are framed by vivid acidity. Hints of minerality lead to a long and persistent finish. A compelling wine crafted to drink now or cellar for the next decade.*Price Does Not Include Gift Box
