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.

Musky, reduced nose dominated by wet stone and flinty minerality. Supple and silky in the mouth but without quite the clarity of the Grandes Ruchottes at this point. Still, some metallic minerality and lemony acidity give this wine a firm finish. Cournut feels this is easier to taste today than the Grandes Ruchottes, and I suppose it's ultimately fatter and less minerally.
