2012 Santenay, Clos des Mouches, 1er Cru, David Moreau

Santenay, Clos des Mouches, 1er Cru, David Moreau
The colour here is a touch less dense than Clos Rousseau but that’s the nature of this beast – or, rather, beauty. There is very pure raspberry and cherry fruit, and it is extremely graceful and very long, with just a touch of spice. There is superb balance to this. A Santenay of great elegance.
Jasper Morris MW, Burgundy Wine Director

Last year it was David Moreau’s “Rousseau” that really impressed me, but in 2012 it’s the Clos des Mouches that steals the show. Forget your preconceptions about Santenay, this is very serious wine, worthy of the more famous villages of the Cote de Beaune. Plenty of red fruit and a wonderful rich mouth-feel, wrapped up in a perfectly judged structure.
Chris Pollington - Private Account Manager

We have been buying from David Moreau since his first vintage in 2009 and are delighted to have found such a class act at the southern end of the Côte de Beaune. There were little bits of hail in 2012 here but nothing very serious compared to other appellations. David chose to harvest relatively late, around 27th September, with yields between 18 and 33 hl/ha.David Moreau
