Aromas of orange oil, crisp yellow citrus fruit, white flowers and wet stones introduce the 2018 Santenay 1er Cru Clos des Gravières, a medium to full-bodied, textural and incisive wine that's deep and multidimensional, underpinned by a lively spine of acidity and concluding with a mineral finish. (WK)
A markedly floral-infused nose is both cool and admirably pure with its red currant, violet, earth, spice and tea scents. The vibrant middle weight flavors exude a subtle minerality while delivering fine depth and length on the understated finish where a hint of bitter cherry surfaces. This isn’t quite as concentrated as the Edouard, but it still manages to display fine power on the slightly more structured finale.
The 2018 Santenay Clos des Gravières Blanc 1er Cru had a taut, quite backward bouquet at the time of my visit, but you can tell it is a coiled spring that will become more expressive once racked. The palate is very saline on the entry and quite harmonious, revealing hints of fresh asparagus and gooseberry toward the finish. An intriguing white Santenay. (NM)
