About
Roger Belland Santenay 1er Cru "Beauregard" 2022 Blanc (RB) is a sophisticated dry white wine, expertly crafted from Chardonnay grapes grown in the "Beauregard" vineyard, a Premier Cru site within the Santenay appellation in Burgundy, France. This wine is a testament to the Belland family's dedication to expressing the unique characteristics of their terroir, utilizing sustainable viticulture and precise winemaking techniques to produce a wine that captures the essence of Santenay's distinctive climat. The 2022 vintage reflects a modern approach to Burgundian tradition, offering a wine that balances the minerality of its terroir with the varietal purity of Chardonnay.
Producer
The Roger-Joseph Belland winery has been owned by the Belland family for the sixth generation. The vineyards are mostly located in the best terroirs of Les Maranges, Santenay, Chassagne Montrachet, Puligny Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay and Pommard Premiers and Grands Crus. The harvest is done entirely by hand, with a very careful selection of the best grapes, which are later moved into very small boxes so that nothing spoils the perfect berries. Maceration and fermentation, thanks to modern technologies, take place at very low temperatures to create complex, pleasantly round and fruity wines. After aging in French oak barrels, the wines are bottled right there in the winery.
Tasting notes

The palate is greeted with a creamy texture that melds seamlessly with a vibrant acidity, leading to a finish that is both long and mineral-driven, showcasing the limestone-rich soils of “Beauregard”. This wine exemplifies the elegance and complexity achievable in Santenay, inviting a thoughtful exploration of its layers.

Pairing

Roger Belland Santenay 1er Cru “Beauregard” 2022 Blanc ēdienu kombinācijas ir vērstas uz ēdieniem, kas papildina tā bagātīgo, bet izsmalcināto profilu, piemēram, pannā ceptas ķemmīšgliemenes, krēmveida risoto vai mājputnu gaļu vieglā garšaugu mērcē. Tā līdzsvarotais skābums un niansētās garšas lieliski sader ar mīkstiem, nogatavinātiem sieriem, radot garšas simfoniju, kas uzlabo gan vīna, gan ēdiena īpašības. Šajos pāros tiek atzīmēta vīna daudzpusība un prieks apvienot Burgundijas baltumus ar plašu kulinārijas gardumu klāstu.

The southern Côte de Beaune appellation which produces both red and white wines. Red wines are very deep and saturated - truly outstanding examples can be found in the appellation. White wines lack elegance. There are 12 Premier Cru vineyards lucky to have the best climate in Santenay.
Burgundy (Bourgogne) can be confusing because of the multiplicity of its appellations - all the small vineyards are divided between multiple producers so it can often be difficult to understand this diversity. However, it is the exact reason why the wines of Burgundy are considered to be the finest in the world. A common topic of discussion, when talking about Burgundy, is the concept of "terroir" - a unique combination of soil and climate conditions that affects the taste of wine in the appellations, making it unique to each village. Winemakers mainly use the capricious Pinot Noir and the classical Chardonnay to create true masterpieces, while Gamay and Aligote are used to make wines of a bit simpler style. Particular attention should be paid to the hierarchy of wines. First there are the regional and village wines, a step higher - the Premier Cru wines and the outstanding Grand Cru - at the top. Due the complex and inconsistent weather that can notably impact wine quality especially in bad harvest years, a very important factor here is the so called millesime - the harvest year of the grapes the particular wine is produced of, because each of these years has its own unique taste. Purchasing Burgundy wines is not easy because there are many details that should be taken into consideration - the class of the vineyard, the assessment of the manufacturer, the age of the vines, the quality of the wine as well as the millesime and, of course, the potential of ageing. The sellers play a big role here - they must be truly passionate about wine and able to offer only the best quality producers with a good reputation. That is exactly the way "Noble Wine" works!
