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.
92-95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2011
(two of three barrels were new): Pale yellow. Very reduced nose offers iodine, smoked meat and spicy oak. Impressively large-scaled for the year but with a light touch for all its density and power. Saline and thick but not at all heavy. The finish explodes with salty minerality. This is very Montrachet-like.
