Wine of Santenay appellation
Santenay is a village appellation of the Côte de Beaune in the Côte d'Or and is produced in the communes of Santenay and Remigny. This appellation, created in 1937, includes 12 climats classified as Santenay Premier Cru: La Comme, Les Gravières, Clos de Tavannes, Beauregard, Clos Faubard, Clos des Mouches, Beaurepaire, Passetemps, La Maladière, Grand Clos Rousseau and Clos Rousseau. 

The vineyards of Santenay and Santenay Premier Cru grow in a soil composed of grey limestone on the high ground, up to 500 metres altitude. Lower down the slope, starting at 300 metres, are Oolitic limestones, white Oolite, marls, limestone nodules, lower Oolite on a layer of marl level. The eastern and southern exposure of the Santenay vineyards is ideal. 

The wine of Santenay and Santenay Premier Cru is predominantly red from the Pinot Noir. It has a crimson purple or black cherry hue, which is usually dark but bright. The bouquet is reminiscent of rose petals, peony, violet and red fruits with a hint of liquorice. The wine is intense and deep on entry to the palate. The firm, subtle tannins create a supple, well-built, finely-textured body. Produced in smaller quantities, the white Santenay wines are made exclusively from the Chardonnay. Domaine Roger Belland and Domaine Chanson Père & Fils express the finesse of the terroir to perfection in their Santenay wines.
