Overview
More
The venerable Chateau de la Cree estate in Santenay, Burgundy dates back to the 15th Century, when it was owned by Nicolas Rolin, chancellor to Philippe the Good and founder of the Hospices de Beaune. Today the Chateau’s vineyards include seven rare Premier Cru blocks located entirely along the renowned Cote d’Or escarpment, home to some of the world’s most storied Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines.
