Domaine Lucien Muzard Santenay Champs Claude
|Region||France, Burgundy, Santenay|
|Brand||Domaine Lucien Muzard|
While the village has a reputation for being more "rustic", Muzard's Santenays tend toward the elegant end of the spectrum, highlighted by crunchy, earthy red fruit and well integrated tannins. On the white wine side, the frères Muzard are of course big fans of Didier Picq's laser-focused, tank-aged Chablis. So, they now raise the whites in a mix of tank and barrel (yet again) as a nod to both the both the classic Cote d'Or and Chablisien traditions. As a result, the whites are aromatic and energetic, and like their red counterparts, among the finest values to be found from the Côte d'Or.
