Founded in 1923 with its roots in the Côte de Beaune, at the edge of the Corton Forest, La Reine Pédauque rose to fame in the 1930s with the acquisition of the Rôtisserie de la Reine Pédauque in Paris.
Located in the South of the Côte de Beaune, Santenay has a double vocation, spa and wine. The village even has a Casino! Its vineyards extend from Santenay to Remigny in continuity with the terroir.
The soil consists of limestone containing marl and clay.
Traditional vinification: The grapes are pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery in pneumatic presses. Settling, cold storing for 48h. Fermentation in
barrels at low temperature, 16/20° to preserve aromas. Ageing continues in barrels on total lies between 8 to 12 months with regular stirring to gain depth and complexity. 30% of new barrels.
