2017 Maison Evenstad, Santenay Premier Cru Gravières Pinot Noir 750ml
Our flagship vineyard in Santenay, the Gravières vineyard lies close to the border of Chassagne-Montrachet and is arguably the most prestigious parcel in Santenay. Our Gravières Premier Cru Pinot Noir comes from mature vines with southeastern aspect and row orientation.
Dressed in a lovely ruby-red robe, the 2017 Maison Evenstad, Santenay Premier Cru Gravieres Pinot Noir opens to a nose of intense ripe cranberry and strawberry with a pleasing hint of delicate pencil shavings. A combination of sultry roundness and narrow focus on the mid-palate exudes elegance and structure, offering perfect tannin integration. Remarkable from its release, this iconic bottling benefits from decanting before consumption, opening opulent aromas and flavors to its fullest and purest potential—an exceptional wine sure to reward over the years with proper cellaring.
