2018 Château de la Crée, Santenay Premier Cru Beaurepaire Chardonnay 750ml
The legendary Beaurepaire vineyard is in Upper Santenay, located on the hillside immediately above the village itself. A portion of this picturesque Premier Cru vineyard is owned and meticulously farmed by the Evenstad's. This high elevation (750-1,000 feet) and sun-drenched parcel is a hidden gem that reveals Santenay’s world-class potential for white wines of great depth and structure, offering a perfect equilibrium of body, elegance, and mineral-rich complexity.
Incredibly vibrant and highly aromatic, this Chardonnay features pink grapefruit, coriander spice, and subtle notes of pie crust on the nose. A fusion of tart fruit and sweet cereal marry to create a perfect harmony on the palate, leading to magnificent tension and mouth-watering length.
