APPELLATION AND VINEYARDS
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.


TASTING NOTES
Wonderfully expressive on approach, this new release showcases layers of enticing
aromas that oscillate between Key lime pie and lemon meringue. On the palate,
the wine is focused and rich with notes of melon. The sultry texture leads to a crisp
finish that highlights a charming minerality that is unique
