Wine AdvocateThe 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.
