APPELLATION AND VINEYARDS
The southernmost village within the Côte d’Or, Santenay’s etymology probably derives from the Latin word “Sanctus,” implying a place that was considered sacred even before the Christian era. Although recognized for its graceful Pinot Noirs, Santenay 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.
Wonderfully expressive on the approach, this wine showcases intense citrus aromas of lemon zest, key lime, and a light touch of honey with an underbelly of minerality and nuttiness. On the palate, the wine is electric, yet rich and round. The balance on display is classy and opulent.
