Santenay is the Côte d'Or's last important wine growing region, lying adjacent to and south of Chassagne-Montrachet. There are around 1,270 acres under vine, of which 99% is Pinot Noir. One third of the land is entitled to Premier Cru status. The Maison Louis Latour Santenay Permier Cru is a blend of the two best sites in Santenay, "La Comme" and "Beauregard".
