Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from May 24 2017

Wine: 2014 Santenay "Clos Rousseau"

Producer: Maison Camille Giroud

Comment: A discreet sheen of wood doesn't interfere with the clear expression of the plum, violet and dark cherry suffused nose. There is ample earth character to the concentrated and serious flavors that display good minerality and a certain muscularity before terminating in a mildly austere and impressively long finish. This will need a few years but it should be quite good in time. Recommended for both quality and value.

Score: 90 Drink: 2021+
