2014 Maison Louis Jadot Santenay Clos de Malte Blanc (taste it Sunday!)
On Sale $36.99
The 2014 Santenay Clos de Malte (Blanc) has a rather conservative bouquet at this stage, with controlled beeswax and honeysuckle scents, later followed by a touch of peach, though the aromatics never let go fully. The palate is well balanced with a fresh lime cordial and orange peel entry. There is commendable weight in the mouth with just a touch of ginger on the finish to liven proceedings.

Owned by AXA Millesimes of Château Pichon Baron with Jean-Rene Matignon overseeing the winemaking, this has an oak finessed nose, touches of vanilla bean, damson fruits, this works very well within the category, has deft touches and is aware of not over extracting but still delivering on fruit.
