AOP Santenay 1er Cru

Domaine Muzard Lucien et Fils 2016

€870 Flacon de 10cl

This Santenay Premier Cru from the Clos Faubard vineyard, located at the top of the hillside, has a deep ruby color and a pinkish rim. On the nose, you’ll find a delicate and extremely elegant bouquet of raspberry notes, leading into toasty aromas of roasted coffee and caramel. On the palate, this Santenay Premier Cru is full, rich and fleshy with a chewy ripe fruit character. Here you have a wine with great power, but which remains very elegant.

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.
