Les Héritiers Saint-Genys Santenay Rouge, Premier Cru Maladière

La Maladière’ is a climat close to the village of Chagny within the Santenay appellation, taking its name from the old French for hospital. These charitable establishments (including the famous Hospices de Beaune a few kilometres away) often received donations of vines. Within the Premier Cru Maladière, Les Héritiers own just under 1ha of 50 year old Pinot Noir vines, on a steep, south-facing, stony limestone slope. As is the practice at Les Héritiers, vines are managed sustainably and harvesting is by hand, allowing sorting to take place directly in the vineyard. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel, and ageing is 100% in oak casks (20% of which are new) for 16 months. Garnet red with fragrant raspberry and cherry-scented fruit which is ripe and concentrated. The brilliant fruit-forward style is matched with some gamey Burgundian complexity married with a tight-knit but supple structure and classic Beaune acidity. From a fantastic vintage, this is already approachable now.

Behind the bottle: Les Héritiers Saint-Genys

Burgundy is renowned for being a jigsaw of small plots, fitting side by side across the rolling côtes and crus, each with many different owners – the result of Napoleonic inheritance laws that divide estates equally between heirs. While some heirs want to make wine, others prefer to live their lives elsewhere, meaning that their plots go untended.Enter Patrice du Jeu, a Parisian restaurateur with the dynamism and energy to revive such plots and also a descendant of the Saint-Genys family. Together with other members of his family and some of his friends, he managed to buy several of these neglected parcels of vines in excellent terroirs of the Côte de Beaune, including Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet and the monopole of Clos Marcilly in Mercurey. Teaming up with white Burgundy expert Jean-Baptise Alinc, the wines of these heirs – Les Héritiers – are both technically highly competent and beautifully crafted.
