The 2018 Santenay Clos de Malte Blanc comes from Jadot's own two-hectare holding (the name is actually a brand name rather than a lieu-dit). It has a light, airy bouquet of wet limestone and fragrant orange blossom scents, more mineral-driven than the Santenay Blanc. The well-balanced palate provides peach, mandarin and light spicy notes on the entry, good focus and a razor-sharp line of acidity. This feels like a very composed and satisfying Santenay that I suspect will offer a lot of pleasure over the following decade. It really benefits from its higher altitude. Excellent.
