Notes: Certified Organic, Vegetarian, Vegan
A classic expression of Santenay blanc, this wine boasts intense notes of verbena, elderberry, lemon confit and bell pepper. The complex palate is beautifully rounded and honeyed but kept in balance by crisp acidity and a delicately saline finish.
Pablo and Vincent Chevrot own 19 hectares of vineyard spread over Cheilly-lès Maranges, Dezize-lès Marange, Santenay and Savigny les Beaune. The `Clos Rousseau` vines grow mid-slope with a south-east facing aspect, surrounded by walls and murgers created from mounds of stones removed by the family ancestors to make the land more arable. Soils are comprised of clay silt on Bajocian limestone that provide the vines with vital nutrients and lend an elegance to the wines.
