Domaine Bachey-Legros Santenay Blanc Clos de Gravieres 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Santenay|
This comes from the lower, northern part of Santenay and is mostly a young vine cuvée. You can hear an echo of nearby Chassagne-Montrachet in the ripeness, richness and texture of the wine, which has flavours and aromas of honey, beeswax and lanolin, complemented by 30% new wood and more than enough acidity and freshness for balance. Drinking Window 2020 - 2028.
Toasty, oaky hazelnut notes fill the nose on this wine. The palate carries these notions and adds creamy texture and ample concentration. There is a little heat from the warmth of the vintage but also generosity and flow. This wine still needs time to integrate. Drink from 2025.
