2014 Santenay Rouge 1er Cru “Les Gravières”

Jean-Marc Vincent

2014 Santenay <i>Rouge 1er Cru</i> “Les Gravières” Jean-Marc Vincent - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Jean-Marc and his wife, Anne-Marie, are a rare breed in Burgundy these days— the one that truly lives by the credo that if you want something done right you’ve just got to do it yourself. No employees, no consultants, and of course, all that comes with that, including no time and no vacation. They don’t seem to want it any other way. This Gravières has loads of fruit, and it’s also got that unique Burgundy—and, more precisely, Santenay—earthiness to it that can turn the accidental sipper into a full-blown connoisseur. This is the style of Burgundy that makes you think, “How’d they do that?” It has put countless people down the one-way path of all-out Burgundy geekery. Sip with caution unless you are ready to go down that path...

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
