2020 Santenay Les Hâtes, David Moreau

Les Hâtes sits in the middle of the village, surrounded by premiers crus on well-draining soil. It is so red-fruited and floral - bursting with grenadine and red currant aromas - that you’d be forgiven for thinking it probably has a high proportion of whole bunch fruit. But, in fact, David says only 3-5% whole bunches went into the tank. The floral character is a natural expression of the site, and makes it a delicious introduction to the village for first-timers.

Tasting notes

The 2020 Santenay Les Hâtes Village is one of Moreau’s "secret weapons" and often over-performs. It has a floral, vivacious bouquet that shows wonderful purity and lift – just unadulterated Pinoté. The palate is medium-bodied, taut and fleshy, with supple tannins, fine acidity and a caressing finish. What’s not to like?
