Santenay produces mainly red wine from the Pinot Noir grape. Colour is a dark but brilliant black-cherry. The bouquet evokes rose-petals, peony, violet, red fruits and a hint of liquorice. In the mouth, the attack is deep and intense. Firm but discreet tannins make for a body that is supple, fine-textured and well-built. It boasts back aromas (often of bilberry) and a long finish.
The white wine (Chardonnay) is clear and brilliant, mineral and floral, fresh and vigorous. Its aromatic expression features notes of bracken and hazelnut.
