AOP Santenay 1er Cru

Domaine Lucien Muzard et Fils 2020

€910 Flacon de 10cl

This Santenay Premier Cru from the Clos Faubard vineyard, on the top of the hillside, has a very pale red colour with a pinkish rim. On the nose, you’ll find an exquisite bouquet of redcurrant aromas, leading into herbaceous notes and notes of peony. On the palate, this Santenay Premier Cru is supple, subtle and fresh with fruity flavours. In short, it’s a beautifully delicate wine.

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.
