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.
93-95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2013
(80% new oak; half of a normal crop): Very closed on the nose, hinting at smoky minerality and musky lees. Then pure and superconcentrated in the mouth, with Montrachet-like flavors of lemon, crushed stone and iodine. This very strong, minerally wine shows a whiplash of flavor on the aftertaste and terrific rising length and volume. Great potential here.
