Santenay
  • 75cl bottle

Located in a small 0.22ha plot at the south of the appellation, next to Maranges, the Clos Rousseau can be found on the south-east facing side of the hill, which enables thegrapes grown in this vineyard to ripen earlier than those located in the village. The stony soils of these mid-slope plantings gives a freshness to the wines.

Vintage

After a complicated start to the growing season, a dry summer with some much needed rainfall in September meant grapes were harvested at a good level of ripeness from 27 September.

Winemaking

Fermentation takes place in oak barrels, after which the wine is aged in casks for 12 months before being bottled.

  • Grilled and Roasted White Meats
