Santenay Rouge Clos Genet - Domaine Laborbe Juillot
The ground composed mainly of calcareous clay, well ventilated, but with many rocks.
This vintage is located in Santenay on the Cote d’Or and in Remigny in the Saône et Loire region. Our parcel is at the heart of Santenay, in mid hillside, and mostly enclosed by walls creating its own micro-climate. With a south to southeast exposure, it benefits fully from the warmest sunrays.
Pinot Noir exclusively
Long aging period in oak barrels.
Fruits (almonds and strawberries) and floral hints (violet) are dominant on the nose. This full-bodied, fruity wine is long-lasting in the mouth. Older wines are characterised by chestnut and prunes.
Its tannin is best appreciated with meals prepared with care, such as braised veal or beef, as well as Asian lacquered and caramelised poultry.
Best consumed within six to seven years after harvest.
Serving temperature between 16 and 18°C.
Available in bottle.
