Bachey Legros Santenay Premier Cru Clos des Gravieres 2016
An elegant white Santenay Premier Cru from a 6th generation run wine estate
This Chardonnay has notes of white peach and acacia on the nose which leads to a complex and fresh palate of quince, pear and lemon. The finish is well balanced with poised acidity and a creamy texture. Drinking very well now but can age well for another four years, the perfect match to fresh seafood and light chicken dishes.
Domaine Bachey-Legros is a very old wine estate, with ancient stones and wines which reflect the terrain. The Bachey family has been working these vineyards and making wine for 6 generations and the house is located on the oldest street of the village of Santenay-le-Haut. Today the estate is run by brothers Samuel and Lenaic alongside their mother, Christiane with a focus on creating excellent wines from their 18ha of old vines.
