The 2019 Santenay La Maladiere 1er Cru, from a large 5-hectare vineyard out of which Jadot selects the most propitious plots, is crisp and edgy on the nose, here offering darker fruit than the Clos de Malte and a light sea spray influence. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins, a rounded texture and good depth. Red plum and cranberry sauce, and a little white pepper sprinkled over a quite tender finish. Recommended.
