The village of Santenay is located in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, just after Chassagne Montrachet and just before the Côte Chalonnaise. The small village of Remigny adjoining that of Santenay to the north also produces wines under the Santenay name.

The Santenay vineyards extends over 935 ha of which 307 are occupied by 11 premiers crus red and white vineyards. The wines of Santenay will mature slowly. They are powerful and well constituted.

Fermentation takes place in tanks, after which they are aged in barrel for 12 months before being bottled.

The red Santenay is well constructed with good tannins, dark ruby in colour, fruity (with almonds, strawberries, chestnuts and prunes) and earthy on the palate. It is an excellent partner for roasts, grilled or marinated red meat, game and traditional cheeses (medium strength). With its earthy notes, it goes extremely well with casseroled pigeon.

It will age for 5 to 10 years and a great vintage will have the ability to age for up to 20 years.
