Wine Details

Santenay Rouge 1er Cru Maladière 2016

Santenay
  • 75cl bottle

The Maladière climat is located mid-slope, between 300 and 320 metres altitude, with our 5ha of vines including some vines older than 50 years. The mix of browner, clay based soils on the western side and the higher limestone content in the east results in well-structured and appealing wines with complex aromas from long oak ageing.

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.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted White Meats
  • Fish/Shellfish
Pairs beautifully with creamy fish pie
