Patricia Raquin Santenay Premier Cru Blanc Beaurepaire
Maison Patricia Raquin
France - Burgundy - Santenay Premier Cru

The animals shown on the label are dogs, from the breed called Borzoi, or "Russian Wolfhound", which means "fast" in Russian. Patricia and Alain Corcia are the proud owners of 2 Borzois and they designed the label to represent the dogs as the guardians of the vaulted ageing cellar inside their house.

The Santenay is coming from the Premier Cru called Beaurepaire. 

The wine shows a great pale yellow color with gold highlights. The nose is very delicate displaying aromas of white blossoms with just a hint of oak. In the mouth, the wine is very soft with a great deal of minerality, superb length and a tangy finish.
