Santenay 1er Cru "Grand Clos Rousseau" 2004, Jean-Marc Battault
Not wishing to be unfair after the shocking Santenay blanc I felt obliged to try the red Santenay from the Battault stable. The great philosopher would turn in his grave at the thought that such wines as this are sold under his name. Cherry, twigs and orange aromas struggle out of the glass. This Santenay "premier cru" is astringent, green and really nasty. Grim.
