DOMAINE BORGEOT SANTENAY 1ER CRU ‘LES GRAVIERES’ 2020 CASE
Tasting in the Cromey cellars sometimes gets exciting and exuberant, we have so many great producers and great wines to try and to choose from. And, I have to admit, sometimes I forget about the wines that got us here in the first place!
We just tasted a Domaine Borgeot Santenay 1er Cru 'Les Gravières' red 2020...and I have to say that it blew us all away.
We have presented Pascal Borgeot's Gravieres for 37 vintages
Hard to believe...And maybe I sometimes take it for granted.
But let me tell you, this 2020 reminds me of why we got into the wine business in the first place.

Domaine Borgeot Santenay 1er Cru 'Les Gravieres' 2020
Not surprisingly, this Borgeot Santenay 1er Cru 'Gravieres' red comes from the same vineyard as their Santenay 1er 'Gravieres' white, just further down the slope where the soil becomes denser and red. ‘Gravieres’ is one vineyard with two different soil types, apt for two different wines. Sadly, many producers have succumbed to the temptation of the bottom line, and have replanted Chardonnay where there should be Pinot Noir. But not the Borgeots! Their 'Gravieres' red is their signature Pinot, with ripe dark fruits tinged with chocolate and coffee, rich, powerful and fat right through the lingering note of pure blackberry.
