Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from May 20 2015

Wine: 2012 Santenay "La Comme"

Producer: Château de la Maltroye

Comment: A subtle touch of wood frames the earthy and resin suffused aromas of mostly white orchard fruit and citrus peel. This is also notably concentrated and the dry extract imparts a very suave texture to the attractively mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess lovely detail and balance thanks to the bright acidity on the saline finish where the citrus character reappears. Good stuff here and this too is highly recommended.

Score: 91 Drink: 2016+
