Louis Jadot Santenay Clos de Malte Blanc
Region: Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France
Bottle size: 75cl
Pale bright yellow. Peach, fresh apricot and vanillin oak on the nose, lifted by a note of lemon curd. Offers enticing sweetness to its orchard fruit flavors, with strong but nicely buffered acidity providing good cut. Finishes with a hint of ripe grapefruit.
The village of Santenay is located in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, just after Chassagne-Montrachet. The Clos de Malte is a 7 ha 'Monopole' (Louis Jadot is the sole owner) situated on the Climat Sous la Fée at the foot of the Montagne des Troix Croix. The Santenay Clos de Malte is mainly planted with Pinot Noir with a small hectare of Chardonnay situated on soil of limestone and clay.
Maison Louis Jadot’s story can’t be reduced to a simple list of dates. It is, above all, a summary of moments, meetings and an overall philosophy, all based on one simple vision: to maintain the grandeur of Burgundy’s great terroirs for all time.
