Santenay 2019, Vins Saisons

£44.00

Eric Pignal and Loïc Lamy, two good friends, have recently started their negoce project based in a well-known cellar in Meloisey – the old cellar of the Rougeot negociant business. They share the passion for the same wines and principles, and both come from rather solid backgrounds: Eric is the assistant winemaker at Château de Pommard, having worked before at domaines Dujac, Roulot and Roumier. Loïc Lamy instead is currently employed as the export manager at Domaine de Montille. Following a natural approach they exclusively work with organically or biodynamically farmed grapes, minimal intervention in the cellar and favour the promotion of under valued terroirs. In their own words "no machinery nor heavy technology is employed, just a lot of care and attention to details”. 

The fruit they purchased for this wines comes from the lieu-dit Les Hâtes, a plot surrounded by premiers crus and located within walking distance to the village of Santenay itself. 

Whole bunch fermentation and sensible oak usage make for a rather elegant wine with spicy, peppery aromas and pure, vibrant black fruits.
