Overwhelming quality from Jean-Luc Maldant, his wine from the most southerly wine-producing commune of the Côte de Beaune, Santenay is a red wine that typically produces darker fruit aromas and flavours too compared with other neighbouring Burgundian villages. The wine has beautiful integration of tannins and the wine boasts dark fruits while still being juicy and completely approachable. Top notch red Burgundy with a good 5 years drinking ahead of it.

Our Tasting Notes

Raspberries and redcurrants on the nose with slight peppery and cinammon aromas too. It is soft and full-bodied with structure. A perfect wine for roasted veal, duck, poultry, ‘coq au vin’ or game. A versatile food wine.

About

Located on an exceptional terroir near Corton’s hill, close to Beaune between Ladoix and Santenay, Domaine Maldant grows Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for decades. The estate exploits a vineyard of 25 hectares and produces a full range of wines from Burgundy, from generic appellations to Grands Crus of red and white Corton. Santenay, lying at the southern extremity of the Côte de Beaune, is home to both the nymph of water and the god of wine: it is both a spa and a wine-growing centre.
