The 1er Cru Les Santenots Pinot Noir is beautiful, complex and refined. 3 LITRES.

The “Les Santenots” climat* is located in the northern part of Meursault facing South-East, next to Volnay in the lower part of the village. This climat* is classified as a Volnay 1er Cru for red and as a Meursault 1er Cru for white.

This wine is a beautiful 1er Cru, very feminine in style, with plenty of silky tannins. The mouthfeel is complex, with some earthy flavours and a long finish. It will take three to four years to be at its peak. However, if you decant it for 45 minutes before serving, it will help the wine open up.

The aging potential is long, around 10 to 12 years. It goes well with a very large array of cheeses made with cow’s milk, steak, pasta, stronger styles of cured meat and game. 100% Pinot Noir. JÉROBOAM - 3 LITRES.

*Climat refers to a named plot of vineyard.

"Among the 1er Cru wines of Volnay, the “Les Santenots” is well respected because the wine brings emotion and complexity. Elegance and power are the perfect words that could define this wine."

The Volnay 1er Cru “Les Santenots” is harvested by hand and the grapes are sorted in the vineyard on the vine. When the grapes arrive at the winery they all go on the sorting table to refine the sorting. The grapes are then fully destemmed and brought gently into the stainless steel vat for alcoholic fermentation. There is no cap punching* and the extraction of the tannins, colours and flavours happens within the three weeks of the vatting period and some pumping overs. After the wine is pumped into oak barrels (25% new oak barrels used), the wine undergoes a fifteen months maturation before bottling.

*Cap punching is a red winemaking technique used to extract phenolic compounds (colour pigments, tannins and flavours) from the grape solids. It keeps the grape solids soaked, preventing spoilage.
