Description :

Contrary to its name, “Les Santenots” is not located in the village of Volnay, but in Meursault, just to the south. Though best known for its white wines, certain terroirs, such as Les Santenots, happen to be better adapted to bringing out all the finesse the Pinot Noir grape has to offer. Several hypotheses exist concerning the name of this locality: "Santenots" may come from the Latin SENTES "brambles, thorny bushes". It may also be derived, as was the name of the village of Santenay, from the Gaulish SENTU "way" (alluding to the roads that passed through there to link Auxey-Duresses with the Roman road). It could also refer to 2 “ouvrées” (=1/12 hectare) of vines in La Sautenot (that could have been located in the Les Santenots area), that the Abbess of the Tart Abbey gave to the Abbey of Cîteaux in 1218.

Aging :

14 to 18 months in oak barrels, 30-35% new

Tasting Note :

The nose of this Volnay Premier Cru “Les Santenots” is delicately smoky and oaky with spicy notes. Appealing fruitiness (cherry), enhanced by mild spices such as cinnamon. This charming wine boasts beautiful structure and remarkable full-bodiedness.
