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.

Healthy bright pale yellow. Wet stone and lemon-lime on the nose, with a musky note of white flowers emerging with air. Sweet, juicy and concentrated, showing very good grip to its stone and lemon flavors. This classically dry, mineral-driven village wine could use two or three years in the cellar or time in a decanter. The yield here was a modest 33 hectoliters per hectare, according to Jean-Pierre Cournut.
