Louis Jadot Santenay Clos de Malte Blanc 2019
The 2019 Santenay Clos de Malte Blanc (Domaine Louis Jadot) has turned out very nicely, offering up notes of buttered pears, citrus oil, white flowers and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, layered and nicely concentrated, it's a bright, precise wine from a late-ripening site.
The 2019 Santenay Clos de Malte Blanc is much more precise and complex than the Santenay Blanc from Prieur-Bonet. On the nose, nuanced scents of peach skin, nectarine and vanilla. The palate is balanced with overt tropical flavors on the entry: mango, pineapple chunks and light stem ginger notes. No, not a subtle Santenay, yet it brims over with flavor.
