Belland Santenay 1er cru “Gravières” 2016


In fact Belland’s wines age quite well, but they’re so drinkable young that most don’t make it past a year or two in our inventory. The Santenay 1er cru “Gravières” 2016 is lovely and elegant today, but should continue to improve for another 5 years if you can keep your hands off it.

The nose is classic Belland, with bright red fruits, spring flowers, and intense berries. The mouth is punchy and dense, with attractive, juicy tannins and a silky palate bursting with raspberry and wild cherries. Burghound awarded 91 points, calling it “outstanding” and finding it “generous and vibrant,” and “beautifully persistent.
