Tasting notes for the Volnay 1er Cru "Santenots du Milieu" 2015 - Arnaud Ente

  • EYE: The bottle displays a deep and intense red color, with some violet reflections. The color is brilliant and reflects the youthfulness of the wine.
  • NOSE: This wine releases complex and elegant aromas. You'll find notes of ripe red fruits such as cherry and raspberry, accompanied by delicate floral touches. Subtle nuances of undergrowth and spices blend harmoniously, adding depth to the overall bouquet.
  • MOUTH: The Volnay reveals itself to be ample and silky on the palate. The tannins are present but perfectly integrated, offering a balanced structure. The texture is velvety, providing a sensation of smoothness to the palate. The fruity flavors unfold with intensity, accompanied by light woody and spicy notes. The freshness adds liveliness to the whole experience, and the finish is long and persistent.


In short: The Volnay 1er Cru Santenots du Milieu 2015 by Arnaud Ente is a red wine of great finesse and elegance. Its complex aromas, velvety texture, and balance make it a very enjoyable wine to experience. This wine pairs ideally with refined meat dishes such as roasted duck, beef fillet, or veal chop. It also pairs well with soft and mature French cheeses such as Brie or Camembert. With its long finish and aging potential (it can be cellared for about 10 to 15 years or more), it represents an excellent choice for any true Burgundy wine enthusiast.

An artist of the vineyard in Meursault


Elected "Man of the Year" by the Bettane & Desseauve wine guide in 2012, Arnaud Ente still deserves the title. According to critic Michel Bettane, his white wines are "the most advanced [...] in the entire world when it comes to Chardonnay." The winemaker, who was also nicknamed the Rising Star of Meursault for a few years, is now considered to be one of the greatest artists of the vineyard in the Côte de Beaune.

With the help of his wife Marie-Odile, his son Pierre, and his two employees, Arnaud Ente takes care of his 4.5 hectares of vineyard the way he would his garden. Although, you need to understand that the man is a true perfectionist (and an inspiration to his brother Benoît). He strives for balance, in all things. Arnaud Ente not only seeks to produce the purest wines possible, he is also constantly trying to find a fragile equilibrium between tension and texture. Acidity and volume.

The concept of precision is very close to his heart. Everything is adjusted and calibrated round the clock... from picking the grapes to pruning the vines. Furthermore, respecting the Burgundy terroir is a real duty for him. Which explains why the yields are extremely low. Of course, Arnaud Ente only uses organic methods in his vineyard (he is a proud recipient of the French "Agriculture Biologique" certification).
