Suggestion from October 26 2016
Wine: 2011 Santenay "La Comme" 1er
Producer: Château de la Maltroye
Comment: A cool, pure and perfumed nose of wet stone, green apple and soft pear aromas leads to beautifully vibrant and well-delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess fine concentration and plenty of finishing punch. I like the refreshing and noticeably saline-infused finish and overall this delivers terrific quality in the context of the appellation.
