CHATEAU DE SANTENAY - Puligny-Montrachet

CHATEAU DE SANTENAY - Chardonnay - Puligny-Montrachet, Burgundy, FRANCE

"Ripe and fruity, this wine has a rich texture that comes both from the generous white fruits and from the cut of lemon acidity. A mineral-textured wine, it's crisp now and will likely round out to bring out the ripeness." - Wine Enthusiast
