Bettane et Desseauve - 2010 ***

A very united family, a lot of generosityn a natural taste for the right flavor, beautiful vines on the best terroirs form Saint-Aubin and Santenay, all of this explains the constant success of this domaine since nearly twenty years. Despite the awful hail storm of the year, the domaine's course in 2005 is perfect. The white 2006s are without the slightest doubt, along the ones of of Olivier Lamy, the best wines ever produced in Saint-Aubin
  • Bâtard Montrachet Grand Cru 2007: 17/20

    Great aromatic race, noble texture, perfect length, precise winemaking of excellent grapes, a real Bâtard.
  • Saint-Aubin Premier Cru En Remilly 2007 : 17/20

    A wonder of finesse, purity, transparency in the expression of a terroir as noble as the premiers crus form Puligny Montrachet. All the charm of the vintage.
  • Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien 2007 : 17/20

    Very elegant, with noble vine flower notes, an intelligent oaky and a sophisticated finish, worth great Folatières. A wine once again exemplary.
  • Santenay Clos Genet 2007 : 15,5/20

    Beautiful colour, very pure and elegant strawberry aroma, a warm and fleshy wine, precise, long, exemplary for the vintage.
  • Santenay Premier Cru Clos de la Comme 2007 : 16/20

    Beautiful colour, rather ripe harvest, a lot of flesh and sensuousness in texture. Nice length, the wine has got character, remarkable winemaking.
  • Santenay Premier Cru Clos de Tavannes 2007 : 15/20

    Strawberry and viola aromas, soft body, less fleshy than the Clos de la Comme, thin and classy but lacks a bit of vinosity.
