Albert Bichot Santenay Les Charmes

Albert Bichot Santenay Les Charmes 750ml   
Sku: 1051300*

In Burgundy, at the extreme south of the cote de Beaune, the 392 hectares of the Santenay appellation takes foot on the first slopes of the Mont-de-Sene. A historically-rich region of full of traditions, the first settlers here go back to the prehistoric era and the Santenay Castle - also known as the Chateau Philippe le Hardi echoes the former attachment of this terroir to the Dukes of Burgundy. The name of this appellation originates from the Romans when the commune was reputed for its thermal baths and its Santinae aquae natural spring. The ”Les Charmes” vines are located on the most south-easterly extremity of the commune, near the hamlet called Santenay-le-Haut. The hillside is orientated south-southeast partly on hard mid-Jurassic limestone and partly on clay and lower-Jurassic marly limestone.

Tasting notes
Our Santenay Les Charmes has a very beautiful deep ruby red colour. Delicately smoky and fresh, the nose also reveals a hint of balsamic followed by notes of red fruit such as raspberry. Harmonious and tasty, this well-structured and balanced wine finishes with subtle fruitiness.

Food pairing
This Santenay ”Les Charmes” is an ideal wine for quite elaborate red meat dishes, game and classic cheeses. Perfect with venison with olives, partridge with morels, boeuf bourgignon (the classic Burgundy beef stew dish) or veal cutlets with shallots. Also highly recommended with cheeses such as Brie, Chaource or Reblochon. Serving and keeping Serve between 16C - 18C (60F - 64F) Laying : Drink while young or lay for 3 to 5 years or more in a cellar.
