Domaine Jessiaume Santenay 1er cru Gravieres French Red Burgundy Wine 750 mL


Decanter 92 rating
“This ‘classique’ cuvée of Gravières is what is left after the old vines for the ‘Numerus Clausus’ bottling are removed (approximately 3.8 hectares). The remaining fruit still makes a compelling wine, with ripe red and black berry fruit aromas and hints of violets, earth, and leather. The texture is tannic but not astringent, and the tannins and fresh acidity carry this to a lovely lingering finish with great elegance and finesse. The destemmed fruit is given a cold soak and gently fermented before ageing in cask (25% new).”


About the Domaine

The year 2020 marked a big turn for Domaine Jessiaume. Sir David Murray sold the Domaine to Dr Jean-François Le Bigot. This Burgundy lover wishes to impulse the qualitative direction of the Domaine. The team stays and focuses on the quality. The vines and the wines are now organic and new investments in the winery are made. A new system to manage the temperature of the wines is installed. A strict selection of barrels from the best barrel makers is started.

“Domaine Jessiaume has been certified organic since 2019. They do a very gentle crush giving a carbonic profile and a gentle extraction. They do a cold soak before alcohol fermentation to get some better color. The reds are aged 12-18 months in  using 1/3 new oak on the Premier crus such as this wine. They get a few months in stainless as well prior to bottling.” Neal Martin
