The premier cru Beauregard sits mid-slope in the northeast part of Santenay near the border of Chassagne-Montrachet, and Nathalie owns 0.3 hectares of Pinot Noir here. If her village-level Santenay is a case study in pure Burgundian Pinot Noir, Beauregard is—as one would expect—more particular in its personality: darker and more somber in its fruit (yet still fresh), with a more succulent texture and a tinge of smoke. Typically yielding four barrels of wine, this sees slightly more new oak (25%, or one out of four new casks) than the other red wines but is in no way unbalanced by it.
