Domaine Saint-Antoine des Echards Santenay blanc ‘Le Chainey’Regular price €35.00
The white wines of Santenay account for only about one tenth of the appellation's production; powerful, intense reds are more usually associated with the name.
The south-facing lieu-dit of Le Chainey lies west of the village of Santenay, and shares a boundary with the premier cru vines of the Grand Clos Rousseau lieu-dit, which claims more varied soils on lower slopes.
The balance of nervy freshness and oak-influenced weight and texture makes this a superb dining wine for pasta, risotto dishes with mushrooms and poultry in creamy sauces.
