Making a name for yourself in the wine world is hard no matter where you are based, but being located in Burgundy makes this nearly impossible without a famed family name to back you. Agnes did not have this. What she does have is hard work and a belief in what she is doing. Agnes, year after year, makes elegant and delicate wines with a real sense of place. The wines drink exactly as they should for the level of designation and village they represent.
Santenay is a village in the southern region of Burgundy in the Beaune. The fruit from this comes from a 40 year old plot. The wine ages in used barrels for one year and then two months in vats before bottling. The punch downs are done by foot.
