APPELLATION AND VINEYARDS
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.
On approach, this rare and exclusive Premier Cru Chardonnay dazzles with sumptuous notes of butterscotch, stone fruits, and brioche. A magnificent balance of minerality and structure envelope the palate. The mouthfeel is brilliant and bright. Flavors reminiscent of grandmother’s peach cobbler give way to a finish that is persistent and lingering. Approachable now, it will enhance beautifully for the next decade in the cellar.
