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.

The 2018 Santenay Clos de Malte (Domaine Louis Jadot) is showing well, revealing aromas of waxy citrus rind, pear, white flowers and toasted almonds. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and precise, with a chalky, nicely defined finish.
