The white Santenay Clos de Malte is a rich and structured wine. It is elegant and fresh, with fruity, citrusy aromas and a hint of woody notes.
The village of Santenay is located in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, just after Chassagne Montrachet. The Clos de Malte is a 7 ha "Monopole" (Louis Jadot is the sole owner) situated on the "climat" Sous la Fée at the foot of the Montagne des Troix Croix. The Santenay Clos de Malte is mainly planted with Pinot Noir with a small hectare of Chardonnay situated on soil of limestone and clay.
A season of extreme summer temperatures and one of the hottest and sunniest on record which led to lower yields. However, whilst yields are low, the quality and concentration is outstanding, with wines of great character.
Fermentation takes place in oak barrels, after which the wine is aged in casks for 12 months before being bottled
