    2004: A difficult vintage to describe
    The white wines are very good, and similar to 2001, with lemon and citrus aromas as well as very attractive overripe notes. To drink now or hold (for people who enjoy aged white wines).
    The reds are still closed at present, and not easy to evaluate.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay on a 0.25 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    This vineyard, located in the commune of Meursault, is unusual in that it is entitled to produce Meursault-Santenots Premier Cru white wine if planted with Chardonnay and Volnay-Santenots Premier Cru red wine if planted with Pinot Noir. Facing east, this vineyard has deep soil with alternating friable limestone aggregate associated with marl and silt.
    Situated at the foot of the slope, this Meursault-Santenots has a perfect balance between soil and stone that encourages ripening.

  • Vinification & Ageing

    The grapes are handpicked into small crates and the whole bunches are then pressed in a pneumatic winepress. The juice was cold settled after pressing for 12-14 hours under temperature-controlled conditions. Alcoholic fermentation and ageing take place 100% in oak barrels with bâtonnage (lees stirring).
    100% malolactic fermentation
    Duration of ageing: 16 months

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in 2005
    COLOUR: Beautiful golden colour with silver-grey highlights
    BOUQUET: Marzipan and fresh butter, with subtle yellow fruit (mirabelle plum) overtones
    PALATE: Very full-bodied and powerful with a toasty, mineral taste
