White flower aromas; clean and fresh with a nice racy minerality, elegant pears and subtle toasted nuts.
I would drink this with black sole, brill or plaice served simply, possibly with lemon and butter.
Santenay is not the best-known region of Burgundy, and even then you are more likely to come across red wines rather than white. So today’s wine is a bit of an oddity. Santenay lies to the very far south of the Côte d’Or. The wines are sometimes dismissed as being a little too earthy, but I have always enjoyed them. Given the way Burgundy prices are going (upwards!) we may see more Santenay being offered on the future.
