Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Santenay Clos Tavannes 2015
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
100% Pinot Noir. Estate vines total under five acres in this east-facing premier cru, surrounded by an ancient stone wall on three sides. Soils are compacted limestone, with some marl. One-third of the vineyard was planted in 1920. Vine age 20-100 years. Hand-harvested. Destemmed. Cold maceration for one week; fermented on indigenous yeasts in tank. Aged in French oak barrel (20% new) for 15 months. Moved via gravity; bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The 2015 Santenay 1er Cru Clos de Tavannes has a deep purple color. On the nose: a mixture of black and blue fruit, bold and upfront though maintaining respectable definition. The palate is chewy on the entry with tannin, quite rigid and masculine and needing some more flesh to counterbalance that sturdiness on the finish. It just needs to mellow by the time of bottling.
