Domaine Lucien Muzard Santenay Vieilles Vignes 2016
Lucien Muzard is run by brothers Claude and Hervé Muzard, the ninth generation at the estate since 1645 in the village of Santenay. Made from low yielding vines scattered throughout the village of Santenay, planted in the 1960s , with organic farming, 40% whole cluster fermentation, native yeasts and 10 months aging in oak, this is a perfectly classic Santenay from the Muzard brothers. With its fine texture, layered complexity, excellent tension, mineral core from the limestone soils and earthy notes on the there is a demure, quietude that keeps you coming back for more.

Wine & SpiritsClaude and Hervé Muzard farm 12.5 acres of 60- to 70-year-old vines in this premier cru, fermenting the wine with 40 percent whole bunches in oak foudres. Their 2014 is a satisfying Burgundy; the lithe red-berry fruit has some fatness to it without any sense of heavy extraction. It’s cool and rooty, a simple, healthy Santenay with lasting earthy savor.
