2013 Château de la Crée, Premier Cru Beauregard Chardonnay
The southernmost village within the Côte d’Or, Santenay is often recognized for its graceful Pinot Noirs. However, it also produces intense Chardonnays of great depth and structure. The Beauregard vineyard is one of those hidden gems that reveal Santenay’s potential for magical white wines that offer a perfect equilibrium of body, elegance, and mineral-rich complexity.
Seductively expressive and highly aromatic, the 2013 Château de la Crée, Premier Cru Beauregard Chardonnay features dried yellow apple, lime pith, and a stony minerality on the nose. A vibrant crispiness fills the palate, leading to a bright, acidic, and driven finish. This is the perfect wine to pair with light fare on a warm summer's day.
