Among the best known of the first Crus of Santenay, "La Comme" deserves to be mentioned among the most beautiful wines of this appellation in the south of the Côte de Beaune. Located in the north of the appellation, near Chassagne Montrachet, the soil contains more gravel, marl and limestone which gives a greater structure and a greater richness to the grapes. The result is a more powerful wine. The south-east exposure is ideal for perfect maturity.

The 2016 vintage, absolutely exceptional; is starting to become rare in Burgundy !

Here the Santenay La Comme is a great success with a rich and opulent wine, while keeping the delicacy of the great red burgundies. The vinification in oak barrels brings structure while keeping the identity of the wine.

A pleasure purchase that will be an ideal companion wine for your white meats in sauce or grilled red meats.

Operating temperature: 15 to 16°C

Wine Characteristics

Santenay produces mainly red wine from the Pinot Noir grape. Colour is a dark but brilliant black-cherry. The bouquet evokes rose-petals, peony, violet, red fruits and a hint of liquorice. In the mouth, the attack is deep and intense. Firm but discreet tannins make for a body that is supple, finetextured and well-built. It boasts back aromas (often of bilberry) and a long finish.
The white wine (Chardonnay) is clear and brilliant, mineral and floral, fresh and vigorous. Its aromatic expression features notes of bracken and hazelnut.
 

Wine Steward’s Tip

Red: its supple and intense attack, and its aromatic register with its distinguished finish mean it should be matched with slow-cooked dishes like braised veal or beef, to which its tannins will lend structure without being agressive. Glazed or caramelised poultry in the Asian style would also give it a warm welcome for its meaty texture, as would home-made hamburgers.
From the cheese-board: Brie de Meaux, Pont-l’Evêque, Cîteaux, Reblochon,Bleu de Bresse...
Serving temperature: 15°C.


White: its lightness, vivacity and edge would be a good choice for fluid and creamy dishes like fish couscous, or pasta or risotto with mushrooms.
Poultry in cream sauce would similarly hit the spot. It would harmonize well with cheeses like Comté, Beaufort, and goat cheeses.
Serving temperature: 11 to 12°C.
 

Situation

Santenay, lying at the southern extremity of the Côte de Beaune, is home to both the nymph of water and the god of wine: it is both a spa and a winegrowing centre. The wines of Santenay and neighbouring Remigny present discernible differences according to which part of the appellation they hail from. The houses of Santenay and its associated hamlets form a scattering of small groups and sumptuous panoramic views are to be had from thehilltops. Human occupation here goes back to pre-history. The Santenay AOC status was instituted in 1937. The Sorine windmill also represents an important part of the history of this commune.

Terroirs

Greyish limestones occupy the high ground up to a height of 500 metres.
Lower down the slope, starting at the 300-metre line, are oolitic limestones, white oolite, marls, kidney-shaped limestones, and lower oolite on a layer of marl. The location of the vineyards is ideal with exposures between East and South.
