Château de la Crée - The “Climats” experience & picnic



Historical presentation of Château de la Crée, founded in 1431 by Nicolas Rolin (Chancellor to the Duke of Burgundy) and the cultural richness of the village of Santenay (Gallo-Roman remains, Monasteries, Mountain of the Three Crosses...).
We’ll then go into our vineyards in Santenay - Clos du Château covering 1.5 hectares, planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
We’ll talk together about the Burgundy classification and the importance of the Terroir through a landscape reading.
We’ll discuss the specifics of the Santenay appellation, Château de la Crée, not forgetting the management of the vineyards.
Then it’s time to go down to our 15th-century vaulted cellars, where we cover the specifics of maturation and understanding the “terroir” thanks to our soil recompositions. This lets you discover the richness of Burgundy.
You can then, within the intimacy of our cellar or outside in the château’s grounds, enjoy 6 wines from the estate during a commented, interactive tasting, accompanied by three cold snacks.
