Santenay Rouge, 1Er Cru Grand Clos Rousseau, (Winemaker Caroline Colin-Morey)

Santenay Rouge, 1Er Cru Grand Clos Rousseau, (Winemaker Caroline Colin-Morey)

Ref: A020712

The Clos Rousseau vineyard of Santenay generally produces wines with great power and structure which can be aged very well over the medium term. Red Santenay, one of the Côte de Beaune's most southerly villages, is invariably earthier than its neighbour Chassagne yet with perhaps less polish. Nevertheless Jean Marc's older vines always turn out a wine of great complexity and concentration which develops very well over a few years. this wine is wonderfully taut with superb balance and packed with rich raisiny fruit. It is very, very long on the finish. Drink 2012 - 2016.

Jean-Marc, now ably assisted by his daughter, Caroline, is really back on form. After a run of tragedies in the early 1990’s (when he lost his wife to a tragic illness and, shortly after, an old friend and employee was killed in a tractor accident) Jean-Marc has rebuilt his life and has re-emerged as one of the leading lights in the village of Chassagne.

Using only indigenous yeasts for the fermentation, maximum lees-contact prior to the first racking, 15% new oak casks and, above all, early bottling in September, this father and daughter team have managed to achieve a range of reds and whites that exhibit a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.

Jean-Marc does not believe in using too much new oak and matching the style of the vintage to the quantity of new oak barrels required. We have been dealing with the Morey family for nearly twenty years when the estate was in the hands of father, Albert.

Champagne Gremillet
Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
