Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The vineyards of "Santenots" are ideally located in the village of Volnay, near Meursault, and ranks among the best and most famous Premiers Crus of this village.
The Vintage 2003 : Exceptional due to a warm summer which incited an early harvest before the end of august. Low yields. Outstanding concentration and fully matured during the harvest. Aging in cask during 12 months
Tasting : Bright ruby colour . Intense aromas of red fruit (red berry), leather enhanced by a hint of chocolate. Outstanding vanilla note. Ample, generous, well-structured, concentrated, with a good aromatic combination. Tannins are present but without sharpness. Good persistence.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
