Tasting notes: "The 2021 Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravières derives exclusively from Vincent's high-density plantings at 17,000 vines per hectare. Revealing aromas of orange oil, mint, fresh peach and white flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a satiny attack, racy acids and a more reserved, mineral-driven profi le than the fleshier Beaurepaire. If the latter will be approachable young, this Gravières will demand at least a little patience. - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

About the winery: Domaine Jean-Marc Vincent is a small estate in Santenay, Burgundy, managed by Jean-Marc and Anne Marie. They cultivate the vineyard close to organic farming and use caterpillar-tracked engines instead of heavy machines. They "tress" their vines and plant them in high density, resulting in wines of exceptional intensity. Harvest is done by hand and sorted in the vineyard. The estate is known for its traditional methods and respect for Jean Marc's grandfather's traditions.

Expert Rating: The Wine Advocate 93+/100
