Description

Santenots is a 1er cru that may be of the most recognizable to consumers, due to its large size and handful of prestigious producers who have brought it attention. It is always a broad shouldered, deep, and sturdy expression of Volnay, which this expresses quite well. The floral intensity is dialed up a notch both aromatically and in the mouth, with denser fruit as well. Its structure is present, buffering the fruit density quite well. This is fairly archetypal Santenots, the most fruit/floral dense of the range. This will age very well…..a little * awarded here.

“(from a .40 ha holding in Santenots du Milieu). Ripe yet decidedly cool aromas include those of violet, plum and both red and black cherry. There is a bit more size, weight and powerful to the denser medium-bodied flavors that are also rich, generous and sappy while exhibiting fine length on the markedly austere, compact and built-to-age finale. As with any competent example of Santenots, at least some patience will be necessary here. (90-92)/2033+” Allen Meadows
