Clos Saint-Jean shows aromas and flavors of ripe yellow apple, peach, and lemon. One expects Clos Saint-Jean to be tense and high in acidity given its position on the hill, but it is often quite rich and broad instead. Aging in 30% new Burgundian pièce brings notes of vanilla and toast. Food Pairing: White Burgundy, with its rich texture and toasted flavors, pairs well with white fish and shellfish, and its naturally high acidity can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Oak-aging lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.
