PRE-ARRIVAL 2020 Saint-Genys Santenay Blanc 750Ml BottleRegular price $119.00 Sale price $97.00
THIS WINE IS ORDERED ON A PRE-ARRIVAL BASIS AND IS EXPECTED JANUARY 2024
This wine is a blend of two climats from Santenay with 30-40y.o. vines: ‘Sous la roche’ (under the rock) said to be one of the best slopes to grow chardonnay, due in part to its chalky clay marl soils and southerly aspect; and ‘Comme Dessus’ just to the other side of the 1er Cru of La Comme.
"Seriously concentrated for this village, with near-perfect ripeness, excellent structure and seamless harmony. Only at the end do you feel the fine tannins very slightly, as they give the long, chalky and salty finish a final push. A cuvee of wines from Sous les Roche and Combe Dessus. From grapes that were sustainably grown, with no use of herbicides." 96pts! -James Suckling
