Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from September 24 2014

Wine: 2006 Santenay "Clos des Mouches"

Producer: Domaine Denis Clair

Comment: This was perhaps the biggest surprise in the range as it was able to more than hold its own against some of the very best from St. Aubin. Slightly more wood is present but doesn't detract from the strikingly complex nose of earth and orchard fruit aromas that are in perfect keeping with the rich, delicious, sappy and palate staining flavors that possess both excellent volume and length plus fine power. This is a first rate Santenay blanc.

Score: 90 Drink: 2010+
