Domaine Chevrot et Fils Santenay “Comme Dessus” Blanc 2015

$85.00 inc. GST

Yellow with golden highlights of medium intensity, notes of quince paste, ripe yellow fruits, cake with yoghurt and lemon. Unctuous, generous, and honeyed, the mouth is in seduction. The acidity draws the elegance of the wine, and its balance is achieved. The aromatic palette is greedy, and the length is long.

This Santenay 2015 offers an imposing bouquet of apricot and exotic fruits, mango and pineapple to the fore, sublimated by the notes of brioche and oak from fermentation and ageing for 16 months in Burgundy oak barrels. After swirling, vegetal aromas of mint, rose and sage speak volumes of this wine’s complexity. The palate offers powerful harmonies of well-ripened yellow fruits on a music-like score that is all voluptuousness and vivacity, long and persistent on the fruit. This rich and exuberant wine is self-sufficient, but the match with a foie gras or an old Comté cheese has already been tried and tested, and a little courage will allow an encounter with Japanese cuisine or white meat tajines.
