ADD

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
