Santenay Premier Cru "Les Gravières"

Description
At the very south of the Côte de Beaune, the Santenay appellation covers 392 ha. The etymological origin of the town dates back to Roman antiquity, famous for its thermal waters and its source "Santinae aquae" ("beneficial waters"). The AOC was established in 1937.

Her deep mauve purple color is brilliant. The bouquet is reminiscent of rose petals, peony, violet, red fruits with a hint of liquorice. On the palate, the attack is intense, deep. Firm and discreet tannins create a supple and robust body with a very fine texture. Nice return of aromas (often blueberry) on a lingering finish. 

We pair it with simmered dishes such as veal and braised beef, which its tannins will structure in the mouth without aggression. Asian-style glazed and caramelized poultry and homemade burgers pair well with its meaty texture. On the cheese board, choose Brie de Meaux, Pont-Évêque, Cîteaux, Reblochon, Bleu de Bresse.
