From the water nymph to the god of wine, Santenay benefits from a dual vocation, spa and wine. Santenay has effectively become Santenay les Bains, a small spa town in the south of the Côte d'Or; its waters are rich in lithine.

After a cold and dry start to the year, temperatures rose quickly at the end of March, triggering a rapid resumption of the growing cycle. A few morning frosts impacted part of the vineyard at the end of April but without major damage. The flowering period takes place in a few days at the beginning of June in superb weather. The summer is hot and sunny but delivers some welcome storm rain to help the plant enter the veraison stage. The harvest takes place at the beginning of September with ideal weather and impeccable health quality of the grapes.


Located at the South border of la Côte de Beaune, the village of Santenay is very sprawling. The soils are brown and limestone in the hillsides and with more of clay and silt at the bottom of the territory. We blend grapes from different vineyards in order to combine structure, quality of fruit and elegance.
