2015 Santenay Rouge 1er Cru “Les Gravières”

Jean-Marc Vincent

2015 Santenay <i>Rouge 1er Cru</i> “Les Gravières” Jean-Marc Vincent - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Santenay sits between Maranges to the south and Chassagne-Montrachet to the north. Last year the ever-curious scholar-farmer Jean-Marc Vincent showed me a terroir map of Santenay, and it turns out that it is identical to the Côte de Nuits. The same geological stratum appears here, which explains a lot about the power and structure of these wines compared to those of the northern part of the Côte de Beaune. Jean-Marc certainly knows how to harness those elements, and his Santenay is the best proof I know of the potential of this appellation. –Dixon Brooke

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.
