So much freshness and energy in this ripe but focused white Santenay. Quite some citrus-zest character and minerality, which are are intertwined with delicate tannins and bright acidity at the long finish. Another impressive 2019 white Burgundy from a cool, high-altitude vineyard site.
Located in Santenay, in the southern Côte de Beaune, Clos de Malte is a 17 acres monopole of Louis Jadot that lies at the foot of the Montagne des Troix Croix. It is planted primarily to Pinot Noir on moist soil of limestone and clay, but there is also a small amount of Chardonnay here. In winemaking, the Chardonnay grapes are fermented and matured in oak barrels for about 12 months.
