About Chateau de la Maltroye

Old-timers in Chassagne remember times when the wines and vineyards here weren't nearly so coveted. When the Cournut family purchased the estate in 1940, the 6.5 acre plot behind the house was a vegetable garden. Today, the beautiful vines that run 200 meters down the hill behind the Chateau make up the priceless Maltroye 1er Cru holding, offering wines that sell for $70-$100/bottle.

90-93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2006

Pineapple and vanilla on the nose. Fat, peachy and sweet, but with lovely ripe acids and spice character giving shape to this youthfully aggressive wine. Very young and hardened by gas (this was also sulfited just two weeks ago, whereas the Dents de Chien and Romanee were dosed a month before that). Powerful but not yet as tasty as the Dents de Chien.

About the Cote de Beaune

It also produces outstanding red Burgundies (such as in Santenay and Volnay), even if Pinot Noir here rarely possess quite the stuffing, complexity, and longevity of...

Chardonnay

The best Chardonnays in the world continue to arrive from the region where the grape first emerged: the chalk, clay, and limestone vineyards of Burgundy and Chablis. While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
