Description

Chateau de Santenay Saint Aubin En Vesvau

Chateau de Santenay Saint Aubin En Vesvau is gold in colour with a very expressive nose. Yellow peach and apricot perfumes are supported by vanilla nuances from judicious oak ageing. The elegant palate has good concentration, with ripe fruit, well balanced oak and minerality highlighting the complexity of the wine.

This magnificent property, also known as Château Philippe le Hardi, as it was once owned by the first Duc of Burgundy. Philippe le Hardi is famous as the person who banned the cultivation of Gamay in the Côte d’Or, saying in his edict of 1395 that only Pinot Noir could be used in the production of red wines from the already fabled slopes. Despite its long history, the property had fallen on hard times until it was taken over by the French bank Crédit Agricole in recent years. They have invested heavily, bringing in a new team to support the general manager, Gérard Fagnoni, and putting the emphasis on quality. The property has 98 hectares of vineyard, 72 of which are in Mercurey. These are remarkably well made and good value wines from the Côte d’Or and Côte Chalonnaise.

Château de Santenay owns 25 hectares of vineyards in the Côte d’Or, including four hectares in Saint Aubin ‘En Vesvau’. The soils here are free-draining with a mixture of clay and sand, and a subsoil which has a high limestone content. This forces the roots of the vine to dig deep to find the vital nutrients and water they need, which in turn results in a high concentration of flavour within the fruit.

The winemaking at Château de Santenay is simple and traditional. After crushing in a pneumatic press, the must was settled for 12 hours then fermented in oak barrels. The wine was aged on its lees and spent 12 months in oak, of which 20% was new, before being bottled in December.

Domaine Gayda Flying Solo Grenache Blanc Viognier IGP Pays D’Oc 2017

Fresh, intensely floral, yet very fruity - apple blossom and lemon aromas give way to peach, orange and all manner of tropical fruit nuances, leading to an intense grapiness on the palate. This really is packed with flavour, combining a touch of richness with gorgeous acidity and a subtle herbiness. A beautifully made wine of real elegance - and brilliant value for money.

An appealing fruit driven wine that has aromas of candied lemon, lime and honeydew melon. The palate is a fusion of sweet citrus, peardrop and ripe melon flavours that continue to a long and zesty finish. The wine is best enjoyed with lightly fried fish or just as an aperitif.

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley 2018

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Domaine Patrick Vauvy Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint. On the palate its fresh and tangy and the finish is fruity and moreish. The obvious accompaniment to asparagus with hollandaise but should be tried with goats cheese and works well with tuna dishes.

Jean-Claude Bachelet Puligny Montrachet Les Aubues 2015

This is really classy in 2010, the first year with the name of the lieu-dit on the label. A beautiful floral nose, dancing fruit, charming and balanced, it possesses an excellent racy acidity and is altogether a great success. From 50-year-old vines in Les Aubues, an enclave within better known Enceigneres, this is very attractive with quite a full nose and an excellent finish.
