Santenay Premier Cru Vaucher Pere et Fils 1986

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.cellartrade.co.uk for £27.Santenay is an appellation created in 1970,although viticulture here goes back centuries,for red and white wines [though most are red] made of pinot noir and chardonnay respectively in the communes of Santenay and Remigny at the southern end of the Cotes de Beaune in Burgundy.There are no Grand Cru vineyards but 12 Premier Cru.My bottles are from a negociant house in this area.I started the first bottle last night with my steak supper.There is some raspberry and cherry style fruit with some soft tannins. There was certainly structure there but it was not as smooth subtle and delicate as some other Burgundy wines,especially othe Premier Crus.. In short,this was OK and a good match for the steak.
