Santenay 'Comme Dessus' Domaine Rene Monnier 1995

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/38066 for £17. Santenay is an AOC for white and red wines [though 85% are red ]made from chardonnay and pinot noir respectively in the communes of Santenay and Remigny at the southern end of the Cotes de Beaune in Burgundy.Domaine Rene Monnier is a vineyard owner and negociant House founded in 1723 and now in the tenth generation of that family.I started my bottle the other evening as an accompaniment to my steak and I enjoyed it.There is a raspberry and cherry like fruit there and the tannins were soft although they were strong enough to give structure.This Burgundy is certainly not bland like some It also managed to be subtle and delicate Overall I would say this is a lovely wine

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
