Château de Santenay ‘Les Puillets’ Premier Cru Burgundy at only £269 per case of 12 bottles delivered! See new vintage
Château de Santenay ‘Les Puillets’ is a fabulous, multiple award winning Premier Cru Burgundy at a sensible price through the Club Wine Cellar. It has won a fistful of major trophies, including ‘Mercurey Trophy’, ‘Red Burgundy Trophy’, ‘French Red Trophy’ and ‘International Pinot Noir Trophy’, Decanter Trophy for ‘Best Red Mâconnais & Chalonnais’ and Decanter Platinum Award. The Club Wine Tasting Panel agree. Château de Santenay is a magnificent property which dates back to the 9th century. Also known as Château Philippe le Hardi, it was once owned by the first Duc of Burgundy, Philippe le Hardi. He famously 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.
This pure Pinot Noir is produced from hand-harvested domaine-grown grapes from the eight hectare 1er Cru ‘Les Puillets’ vineyard. The wine spent 13 months maturing in French oak barrels (20% new) before being bottled. Drinking beautifully now, it is a great match for grouse, pheasant, venison, goose, duck and more. It will also reward cellaring for a further eight years or longer 100% Pinot Noir.
