This 100% Chardonnay is from the Les Gravières Premier Cru vineyard in Santenay and it is a knockout!

Santenay is an AOC located in the Côte de Beaune. Though the Côte de Beaune is more famous for producing notable white wines from Chardonnay, this particular AOC has a production that consists of almost 85% red wine (Pinot Noir) and only a little over 15% of white wine (Chardonnay).

Les Gravières is a large Premier Cru vineyard of the Santenay appellation in Burgundy. It is located immediately east of Santenay village. Wines made from Les Gravières' fruit are permitted under appellation law to bear the vineyard's name on their labels. The rules are slightly more stringent than those that apply to standard Santenay wines. There are 11 Premier Cru sites within the appellation's land area, divided roughly into three sections – to the north, east and west of the village – following the curve of the limestone slopes above. Being at the southern, rounded tip of the Cote d'Or escarpment, Santenay's vineyard sites are south-facing and blessed with excellent exposure to the sun.

Pairings: Steamed crab, lobster, saffron, ripe and raw tomato salad, oven roasted chicken, salmon gravlax, mustard rubbed lamb loin.
