Santenay Clos de Saint-Jean is a new addition to the lineup, in lieu of former Santenay village blend. Just as a reminder, ‘Clos’ is French for walled or enclosed vineyard. It was named ‘Saint-Jean’ after the neighbouring Church that overlooks the hill. This is a square vineyard located in the Grand Clos Rousseau premier cru area. Vines are in their early twenties and set in a clay and limestone soil.
Textbook, rather earthy & mulch-scented nose. The palate is slightly peppery and has plenty of fruit with a sappy, black plum and long raspberry-tinged finish, over the smooth tannins. To be served at 14-16°C (57-61°F). Ageing potential: 7-10 years.
