Santenay Rouge 2016

Santenay
  • 75cl bottle

Made from a blend of various plots covering 1.83ha, some located on top of the hill above Santenay-le-Haut and others at the foot of the hill. The wine is well-structured with a deep colour and robust tannins, softened by 18 months of ageing in oak. Expressive red fruit characters dominate.

Vintage

After a complicated start to the growing season, a dry summer with some much needed rainfall in September meant grapes were harvested at a good level of ripeness from 27 September.

Winemaking

Grapes are vinified in open vats for around 4 weeks, followed by around 18 months in oak.
