Wine making

Fermentation takes place in tanks during 3-4 weeks, after which the wine is aged in barrel for 12 months before being bottled.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy

The Santenay 1er Cru « Passe Temps » develops typical Pinot noir aromas (red fruits) as well as flowery notes and chestnut. Well structured, with good tannins, it is a vibrating wine. It will evolve harmoniously during several years. It is an excellent match for roasts, grilled or marinated red meat, game and traditional cheeses (medium taste).

Preservation

It will age well for 5 to 10 years in good conditions of conservation and temperature.
