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.

Mineral-driven aromas of lime, mirabelle, honey, licorice and crushed stone. Sweet, full and concentrated, but showing a distinctly firm edge to the flavors of lemon drop, wet stone and menthol. Finishes broad and long, with salty mineral traces. This should ultimately outclass the Vigne Blanche but it's more closed today and needs at least three or four years of cellaring.
