Domaine Justin Girardin Santenay Les Terrasses de Bievaux 2018 (6513)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Beaune - Santenay
Chardonnay

 

In old French 'bievaux' means 'beautiful valley'.
Historically this land was reputed to produce excellent white wines but, after the destruction of the vineyards by the Phylloxera pest, this hillside was left abandoned.
In the 1960s a number of vines were replanted and in view of the quality of the resulting wine, the entire hillside was replanted between 1970 and 1986.
The slope is very steep (25%) so the planting was done in terraces.

Delicious nutty character on top of toasty oak, butter, stewed apple fruit and a distinct flint and slate character. Classic burgundy at a fair price in comparison with so many of its stablematesthese days."
