CHATEAU DE SANTENAY - Pommard "Petit Clos" MONOPOLE

CHATEAU DE SANTENAY - Pinot Noir - Pommard "Petit Clos" Monopole, Burgundy, FRANCE

Pommard is a familiar Burgundy appellation. The wines of Pommard are quite different from those of the neighbouring villages. They tend to be deeper and more concentrated than Beaune or Volnay wines and have a sumptuous perfume. This wine requires a number of years to reveal itself.

VINEYARD

The estate of Château de Santenay is spread over an area of 90 ha ( 222 acres) stretching from the southern vineyards of Mercurey in Côte Chalonnaise up to the Grand Cru of Clos des Vougeot in Cote de Nuits. We own no less than 25 different appellations.
A third of our estate is located in the Côte d’Or with vineyards in Aloxe-Corton, Beaune 1er Cru, St Aubin, Pommard, and …. Santenay of course and the rest is located in the up and coming appellation of Mercurey.
The estate was converted to sustainable farming in 2004, Terra-vitis certified. We apply practices which respect the environment. We don’t use herbicides pesticides, or artificial chemicals. Our goal is to maintain life in the soil and maximum empressize each plot’s terroir in the wines produced there.
Each Parcel is vinified separately to transmit the full expression of the terroir.
A modern and advanced winery welcome our grapes, with gentle extraction for respecting the terroir of each parcel.
The castle was once the residence of the Duke of Burgundy Philippe Le Hardi (Philippe the Bold) ( 1342-1404) who was the first and foremost ambassador of Burgundy and its great wines.
Conscious that wine was not just a mere beverage, in 1395, he issued an edict banishing the disloyal Gamay grape in favor of the noble Pinot noir. To this day, Pinot noir is still the grape used for all burgundy’s flagship red wines.

Monopole. The village itself lies approximately 2 miles south of Beaune, and the total appellation is covering 300 hectares, flanking a narrow valley which leads back into the Côte d'Or hinterland.
