From the tip of Chablis to the toe of Beaujolais, from regional, village, 1er Cru and Grand Cru wines Louis Jadot produces Burgundy and nothing but Burgundy. The familiar Bacchus head label has become the reliable stamp of quality and consistency from what can often be a confusing region.
Louis Jadot Santenay ‘Clos de Malte’ 2014
This seven-hectare ‘clos’ forms part of the climat of Sous la Fée towards the top of the slopes in Santenay and is wholly owned by Louis Jadot. The soil here is particularly rich in limestone and produces well-structured wines with good fruit and full tannins. Aged 12 months in oak barrels before bottling to allow the rich tannins to soften and round. The vineyard name is a reference to its former ownership by the Order of the Knights of Malta.
