Meursault Santenots 1er Cru

Terroir

This vineyard, located in the commune of Meursault, is unusual in that it is entitled to produce Meursault-Santenots Premier Cru white wine if planted with Chardonnay and Volnay-Santenots Premier Cru red wine if planted with Pinot Noir. Facing east, this vineyard has deep soil with alternating friable limestone aggregate associated with marl and silt. Located at the foot of the slope, this Meursault-Santenots has a perfect balance between soil and stone that encourages ripening.

Vinification

Whole bunches of grapes were handpicked into small crates and the pressed in a pneumatic winepress. The juice was cold settled after pressing for 12-14 hours under temperature-controlled conditions. Alcoholic fermentation and ageing entirely in oak barrels. 100% malolactic fermentation. Duration of ageing: 22 months

Features

Color: Light green, bright silver reflections. Nose: Charming with anise and fresh fruit notes (white fruits, pears, white peaches) evolving into fine spicy notes (vanilla). Palate: Delicious with a fresh and precise texture, enhanced with sharp and spicy notes, with embracing sapidity on the finish.
