Santenay Premier Cru "La Maladiere"
CÔTE DE BEAUNE
Behind its pale lemon color, our Santenay Premier Cru "La Maladière" hides intense aromas of lemon, yellow peach, and tropical fruit. Its refreshing palate reveals a certain sweetness, highlighted by vanilla and smoke. The lightly saline finish evolves pleasantly before ending with a touch of mint.
Located above the village of Santenay, our Premier Cru “La Maladière” combines a marly-clay and limestone-rich soil that produces a mineral and lively Chardonnay. Lying at the southern extremity of the Côte de Beaune, the appellation was created in 1937. Renowned for its intense red wines across the world, Santenay also produces a handful of chiseled white wines like our “La Maladière”.
