Belland Santenay 1er cru “Commes” 2020


Roger and Julie Belland are 5th and 6th generation growers in Santenay — their wines are perennial favorites among our readers, offering early drinking and friendly pricetags. Belland’s are always delicious and precocious, but in 2020 they’re even better than usual.

Commes is on the upper part of the slope and the wine it produces is more precise, with excellent density and very fine tannins. It is just a touch lighter in weight than Gravieres, and refinement is its particular virtue. It has a lovely mineral line, and the only 20% whole cluster fermentation gives it a less structured, softer feel.
