    Winemaker Notes

    This wine exhibits a complex nose of spices and ripe fruits, with a robust combination of black fruits, stone fruits and spicy notes—supported by well-integrated tannins—that carries through on the generous, almost fleshy palate. Showing a lovely strength complemented by genuine elegance it will drink beautifully upon release, while more fully revealing its intriguing terroir with a few years of patient cellaring.

    The venerable Chateau de la Crée estate in Santenay, Burgundy dates back to the 15th Century, when it was owned by Nicolas Rolin, chancellor to Philippe the Good and founder of the Hospices de Beaune.

    Today the Chateau’s vineyards include seven rare Premier Cru blocks located entirely along the renowned Côte d’Or escarpment, home to some of the world’s most storied Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines.

    Comprising 25 acres of prime vineyard blocks in Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet, Santenay and Maranges, the Chateau de la Crée estate features a two-to-one varietal ratio of Pinot Noir to Chardonnay, with 40% of all plantings in Premier Cru sites. Biodynamic farming practices are employed in all our vineyards to drive optimal terroir expression, and ensure soil and plant health.

    Chateau de la Crée is uncompromising in its dedication to terroir transparency and its focus on sustainability.

    In the far southern end of the Côte de Beaune, Santenay forms a little notch that juts into the otherwise straight border with Côte Chalonnaise.

    Santenay red wines show the true essence of red Burgundy at good price points and without demanding a lot of cellar time. Enticing aromas of rose-petal, violet, red fruits and licorice lead to sturdiness on the palate. With soils rich in oolitic limestone and marl, this is the home of well-constructed, hearty Pinot noir and represents a fantastic region to explore if you are just beginning your understanding of red Burgundy.

    Reputable vineyards of Santenay include La Maladière, as well as the Premier Crus of La Comme, Clos de Tavannes, and Les Gravières.
