Louis Jadot Domaine Gagey 2020 Santenay Rouge Clos Des Gatsulards Monopole
"The 2020 Santenay Clos des Gatsulards Monopole (Domaine Gagey) is a particular success, delivering aromas of raspberries, orange rind, petals and spices. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and vibrant, with velvety tannins and a nicely defined finish, it will offer a broad drinking window.
The 2020 vintage has turned out beautifully at this address, delivering concentrated, flavorful wines with alcohol levels between 13.3% and 13.7% and with low pHs. Winemaker Frédéric Barnier told me that efforts were made to pick earlier in the day, and that fruit waiting to be processed was kept fresh in a special cold room. In the cellar, foudres and 500-liter barrels now complement classic 228-liter pièces, a further evolution adapting to warmer, riper vintages. But aside from the quality of the 2020s and these technical developments, described in more detail in the accompanying tasting notes, there's other noteworthy news too: in 2021, Jadot entered into organic conversion for their domaine vineyards."Robert Parker 89-91 Points
