The 2009 Santenay Clos Tavannes is a taut, focused wine. Dark fruit wraps around an intensely mineral core. This is an especially taut, sinewy wine that sparkles with fruit. Still, it remains inward and in need of cellaring. The Clos Tavannes is a jewel of an entry-level wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014. ||This is a stunning set of wines from Patrick Landager. The vintage yielded a set of super-sized, big wines that may shock some readers for their sheer intensity. These are among some of the most backward 2009s I tasted and will require considerable patience. The estate now farms a total of 19 hectares, which includes the vineyards Landager acquired when he bought Domaine Moine-Hudelot a few years back. In 2009 Landager started harvesting on September 22, when most people were already finished picking. Cuvaison started with 5-6 days of cold maceration and lasted a total of three weeks with one punchdown in the morning and a second in the afternoon. The wines spent 12-15 months in oak (roughly 30% new) on their fine lees with no rackings until they were prepared for bottling, which took place with no fining or filtration. (Note: the Chambolle saw 50% new oak). All of the 2009s were bottled in early February 2010. Wine Advocate.May, 2011
