Santenots is a highly regarded 1er cru in Volnay. The fruit for this cuvee comes from Nicolas Rossignol two hectare parcel, which is divided into three sections according to soil type. The top half on the Volnay side is stonier, closer to the Bathonian limestone bedrock, making tight, mineral and vigorous Santenots. As the soil becomes sandier towards Meursault the vines- which are the oldest- make supple, elegant, refined and lighter wine. The third section is below, the clay soils produce softer and richer wines. His vineyard stands out for the high and healthy canopies, which his grandfather initially encouraged him to grow. Nicolas has a pragmatic approach to viticulture and takes elements from biodynamic viticulture that work for him; the lunar calendar is followed for pruning. The vineyard management is a labour of love: his focus is firmly on the life and energy of the soils. They are lightly ploughed and the fruit is hand-harvested.

Having tasted thousands of wines over the past fifteen vintages in Burgundy, and having been captivated by the individual characters of the vineyards, each with its unique terroir, Sarah Marsh MW decided to embark on her own terroir-driven project.
Following a concept of vinifying grapes from a lieu-dit or specific part of a vineyard which, for some reason, be it the soil or the vine age, could stand alone, Sarah works closely with domaines she knows well, where the vineyard has been meticulous cared
for with healthy ‘living’ soils. Buying from domaines who do not usually sell their precious fruit is an unusual approach, but those winemakers have made an exception to support Sarah’s terroir project and the stunning results speak for themselves.
