2017 Maison Evenstad, Santenay Premier Cru Beauregard Chardonnay 750ml
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.
This vintage is gorgeously aromatic, instantly enticing with notes of butter crossant and vanilla frosting, accented with hints of spiced pear. Exquisite and balanced, the acidity is integrated perfectly. A long creamy finish ensures this wine’s prized spot in the cellar of any serious collector of fine white Burgundies.
