Seamlessly elegant Chardonnay of great depth
Delightful aromatics of white flowers, toasty hazelnuts and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied with lively acidity and a vibrant fruity core of peaches, golden apples and citrus oil. There’s great depth and concentration here while still remaining accessible. With an elegantly chalky finish of great persistence.

A highly regarded family run domaine centred in Santenay run by Jean-Marc and Anne-Marie Vincent whose careful work in the vineyards and cellar is aimed at making long lasting wines that evolve slowly. While the Domaine is small, with only one of their wines stretching to more than 2 barrels, it has now established itself as one of the most exciting in the region. So much so that their techniques are now being adopted by vignerons of the more prestigious Vosne-Romanée and Gevrey-Chambertin appellations. Jean-Marc and Ann-Marie continue to raise the bar for Chardonnay in this little corner of Burgundy.Here is a small Domaine that packs a mighty punch.
