Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Well priced Burgundy is not often good but this one most certainly is. Bursting with floral tones of pot pourri and fresh petals and clean vibrant fruit. Delicate but it has a powerful side, with full flavour and good use of oak. Serve with crispy skinned chicken and creamy polenta @wrightwineblog
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

A medium-bodied Pinot Noir, pale ruby in the glass, oak aromas of leather and earth. Red cherry on the palate with the acidity and tannins blending well. White meat dishes and appetizers will pair well.
Château de Santenay 2016 is produced from Old Vines Pinot Noir. Youthful, racy with vibrant cherry and oak spice flavours. Tannins are structured and grippy. Great effort from a difficult vintage with bouts of hail, frost and mildew. Yields were very low and the vintage saved by warm, dry and sunny days from August to October. Enjoy with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews
