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% Crets and 10% Fairendes): Aromas of resiny apple, menthol and flint show a slightly metallic quality. Minerally and high-pitched in the mouth, with good cut to the citrus and stone flavors. Has good underlying fat but comes across as tight today, with the finish showing a youthful sour edge. The acidity here is 4.9 grams per liter, according to Cournut.
