David Moreau Santenay Rouge 1er Cru Beaurepaire 2021

$145.00

The 2021 Santenay Beaurepaire 1er Cru has a clean and pure bouquet with precise and pure red cherry and strawberry fruit, wilted rose petal and light violet aromas percolating through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip, a little foursquare in style. A small amount of chalkiness towards the finish is detailed, though never powerful. It will provide a lot of pleasurable early drinking. 89-91 points – Vinous, Neal Martin

 

I head back down to his small cellar to taste through a splendid set of 2021s. “We started picking on 22 September, Moreau begins. We picked later to make sure the truit was ripe. In some frozen vintages like 2Ol6, you have bunches that ripen later, but even secondary buds didnt really develop. We tried to get nice tannins and tresh truit but did not seek strong wines in 2021. So we did a gentle extraction and maintained the bright acidity. Yields are 20 to 25hL/ha. This year, we were more prudent with oak, 15-25% new, with a maximum of 5% whole bunches. There are some delightful wines from one of Santenay’s finest vignerons, crisp fruit, lively and tensile, each expressive of their terroirs. Neal Martin – Vinous, November 2022
