AOP Santenay 1er Cru

Domaine Muzard Lucien et Fils 2016

€850 Bottle of 10cl

Clos des Mouches – the smallest of Santenay’s premier cru vineyards – takes its name from the beehives that one stood here, since back then bees were referred to as ‘mouches à miel’ (honey flies). This ruby colored Santenay with a pinkish rim reveals a perfume of peony and red fruits. In the flavors, you’ll find cherries and kirsch, raspberry, and spices like cinnamon and vanilla. It is a smooth and silky wine defined by finesse and elegance. Serve with refined cuisine.

Winemaker

Claude et Hervé Muzard

The Muzard Vineyard belongs to a very old Santenay family where they have been winegrowers from father to son for nine generations (Jacques Muzard in 1645). Mr and Mrs Lucien Muzard structured the establishment in the 60s by renting vines at first and then bought them little by little. Claude and Hervé Muzard now operate the 16 acres of the family vineyard, spread out over different climates in Santenay, Chassagne Montrachet and Pommard. The overall production of the vineyard is 5% white wines.
