From an exceptional site owned exclusively by Jadot -- the 'monopole' of Clos de Malte -- comes a super-value white Burgundy. This part of the Sous La Fee vineyard is rich in limestone and clay, resulting in lush and structured fruit with aromatic citrus that stands up to its year in barrel. Characterful and ready to go, this is a delicious drink-now single-vineyard Burgundy for only the same price as many single-vineyard Kiwi Chardonnay.

Its Origins

In Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, where the integrity of the producer is often more important than a renowned appellation or vineyard, Maison Louis Jadot is one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses. Jadot’s winemaking team, now led by Technical Director Frédéric Barnier, has maintained a balance of tradition and technology in winemaking that allows Jadot’s wines to express the subtle differences between terroirs that are the essence of fine Burgundy. Though officially retired in 2013, esteemed winemaker Jacques Lardière continues to work in an advisory role and on special projects. Founded in 1859, the house has grown through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the Cote d’Or’s most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots.

What The Critics Say

Vinous, Neal Martin

"The 2017 Santenay Clos de Malte Blanc has a fresh, lightly sea-influenced bouquet featuring oyster shell aromas that tincture the citrus fruit. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, a tad richer than expected. The texture feels waxy and there is a dab of spice toward the finish, although I would like a little more terroir expression on the finish." Drink 2020 - 2028

Burghound, Allen Meadows

"Much more evident wood influence that includes vanilla hints fights somewhat with the lemon peel and Granny Smith apple aromas. The round and opulent flavors possess a suave mouth feel that deliver good length if limited depth on the very dry finish. This easy going effort should also drink well young." Drink 2020+
