Santenay "Les Charmes"


Côte de Beaune


AOC Village

Grape variety

Pinot noir

In the southernmost part of Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune, the 392 hectares (721 acres) of Santenay’s vines take root on the first slopes of the Mont de Sène hill. The name of this appellation refers to Roman times when the village was renowned for its thermal baths and its natural spring, "Santinae aquae", meaning "healing water" in Latin. "Les Charmes" is located in the southeastern part of the commune, near the hamlet called Santenay-le-Haut.


Delicately smoky and fresh, the nose also reveals balsamic nuances followed by notes of red fruit such as raspberry. Harmonious and flavourful, this structured, balanced wine boasts a finish evocative of subtle fruitiness.
