Vineyards situation : The village of Santenay is located in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, just after Chassagne Montrachet.

Characteristics : 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 very damp soil of limestone and clay.

Wine making : Fermentation takes place in oak barrels, after which the wine is aged in casks for 12 months before being bottled.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy : The white Santenay Clos de Malte is a rich and structured wine. It is elegant and fresh, giving off fruity aromas, is lemon-scented and slightly woody. The wine is very elegant and compliments scallop pieces simply fried and scattered with mushrooms.

Preservation : It will age well for 5 to 10 years in good conditions of conservation and temperature.
