2015 Santenay 'Gravieres' Premier Cru 750ml
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. Although recognized for its graceful Pinot Noirs, Santenay also produces intense, mineral-rich Chardonnays of great depth and structure. The Gravières vineyard lies close to the border of Chassagne-Montrachet and may be the most prestigious parcel in Santenay. Our Gravières Premier Cru Chardonnay comes from mature vines with southeastern aspect and row orientation.
Our flagship Chardonnay from Santenay - located just 300 meters from Les Montrachet. This wine is electric on the approach and showcases intense citrus aromas of lemon zest and white flowers. On the palate, the wine displays a vibrant acidity, yet feels rich and round with a gentle note of honey on the finish. This is why it is one of our most renowned Premier Cru Chardonnays!
