Côte de Beaune
In the southernmost part of Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune, the 392 hectares (969 acres) of Santenay’s vines take root on the first slopes of the Mont de Sene 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.
The nose is redolent of white flowers (acacia) and opens on lemon and candied pineapple. The palate is rich and mineral with a nice salinity, which brings freshness and energy. The aromas of elderberries and lily are completed by citrus fruits. Subtle notes of hazelnut and gingerbread assert the personality of this terroir wine.
This wine is both intense and fresh and will pair perfectly well with oily fish, white meat and hard cheese.
