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.
87-89 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2013
Component #1, from the Chassagne side: Pale yellow. Musky and reduced on the nose and a bit stunted in the mouth by a recent sulfur addition. Juicy and serious, with sound acid spine. Component #2, from the Puligny side: More peach on the nose, along with a touch of oak. Then sweeter and fruitier in the mouth, showing good fat and excellent length. These two components will be blended to make a single village offering.
