Ch‰teau de la CrŽe

Cel­e­brat­ing the Côte d’Or

Decanter - - PROMOTIONAL FEATURE -

In 2015, Ken and Grace Even­stad ac­quired Château de la Crée, the re­spected wine es­tate lo­cated in the birth­place of Pinot Noir and Chardon­nay: the renowned Côte d’Or.

The ven­er­a­ble Château de la Crée es­tate in San­te­nay, Bur­gundy dates to 1431, when it was owned by Ni­co­las Rolin, chan­cel­lor to Philippe the Good and founder of the Hos­pices de Beaune. The Château’s vine­yards in­clude seven rare Premier Cru blocks lo­cated en­tirely along the renowned Côte d’Or es­carp­ment, home to some of the world’s most sto­ried Pinot Noir and Chardon­nay wines.

Com­pris­ing 25 acres of prime vine­yard blocks in Pom­mard, Vol­nay, Meur­sault, Puligny-Mon­tra­chet, Chas­sagne-Mon­tra­chet, San­te­nay and Maranges, the Château de la Crée es­tate fea­tures a two-to-one va­ri­etal ra­tio of Pinot Noir to Chardon­nay, with 40% of all plant­ings in Premier Cru sites.

In 2017, seek­ing to show­case the best of Bur­gundy, the Even­stads de­buted Mai­son Even­stad as a rare and ex­clu­sive bar­rel se­lec­tion from the finest vine­yard prop­er­ties lo­cated through­out the Côte d’Or.

Mai­son Even­stad and Château de la Crée are crafted by Grace and Ken Even­stad with a fo­cus on qual­ity, sus­tain­abil­ity, and ter­roir trans­parency. The Even­stads re­main very grate­ful and hon­ored to be the stew­ards of these an­cient vine­yard sites for this gen­er­a­tion.
