Located in Santenay, in the southern Côte de Beaune, Clos de Malte is a 17 acres monopole of Louis Jadot that lies at the foot of the Montagne des Troix Croix. It is planted primarily to Pinot Noir on moist soil of limestone and clay, but there is also a small amount of Chardonnay here. In winemaking, the Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in tanks for up to 4 weeks, and then the wine is matured in oak barrels for 12 months before bottling.
