Bachey-Legros Santenay Sous La Roche
We planted this plot of a half-hectare in 2000. It is showing good characteristics that deserve to be discovered.
The appellation is situated above the "Beaurepaire" Premiers Crus, in Santenay. "Sous La Roche" is named very appropriately, as it is very close to the bedrock, scattered with little murger stone walls, the soils bring lots of mineralogy to the wine. Another peculiarity of the location is that at night the surface stones give off the heat retained during the day, allowing the grapes to mature perfectly, and giving the wine a distance roundness.
All these natural qualities led us to plant Chardonnay here. Ultimately, our Santenay "Sous La Roche" with its natural well balanced freshness has all the qualities of great white wines. A stylish and gourmand wine.
