Santenay is a French red wine from Burgundy – currently the most famous wine region in the world. This Santenay is made from the Pinot Noir grape grown in a prestigious vineyard of the Premier Cru category. The vineyard spans 0.8 hectares and is 50 years old. This is a classic, elegant Pinot Noir variety that is meant to be aged for several years to achieve its true potential.
The Les Héritiers Saint-Genys winery estate lies in the renowned wine-producing village of Chassagne-Montrachet. You are welcome to open your bottle at any point during the cellaring period. If you purchase more bottles, you can follow the wine’s journey through the different stages of aging.
Santenay makes an ideal gift for friends who have just had a baby. A bottle of this luxury red wine can be stored until the child turns 18 (or older), when the whole family can open and enjoy it together.
Santenay is a perfect gift for any other special occasion that will take place several years from now. You can gift it on a current anniversary that will become a milestone anniversary a few years later. Thus, one gift becomes two – an added benefit.
