AOP Santenay 1er Cru

Domaine Lucien Muzard et Fils 2019

€910 Bottle of 10cl

Clos des Mouches – the smallest of the Santenay premier cru vineyards – takes its name from the beehives that one stood here, when bees were referred to as honey flies or ‘mouches à miel’. This Santenay Premier Cru with its ruby red colour and pale pink rim is dominated by kirsch aromas and forest-floor notes of wild strawberry and moss. On the palate, it has a full body with a slightly peppery finish. A rich and round wine full of charm and elegance.

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.
