2021 Santenay 1er Cru Beauregard, Justin Girardin

New release

Beauregard is one of Santenay’s finest premiers crus, lying at the eastern end of the village, near the border with Chassagne. It’s a particularly picturesque site, with a windmill in the vineyard - a good indication there is a steady breeze here, helping to keep the fruit cool as it matures. The limestone soil gives the wine a freshness and acidity that make it hugely appealing in its youth. This is scented with red berries: cranberries, wild strawberry, red currants. There is such freshness, balance and depth on show here, with a lovely herbal note running through the palate. The tannin structure is particularly fine-grained and supple, and its finish is long and elegant. This is one of the best value reds we tasted in all our time in Burgundy.
