Description : 

It is commonly agreed that the best vineyards of Santenay come from the northern end of the appellation, bordering of those of Chassagne-Montrachet. The increased proportion of gravel, marl and limestone in the soil adds structure and richness to the grapes, which in turn produce a more powerful wine. On a gentle South-Eastern facing slope, the vines of Premier Cru ‘La Comme' produce grapes that reach full maturity. The name "La Comme" is the regional form of "Combe”, because the vineyard is in the extension of the Combe of Saint-Aubin
