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 2014
Sample #1, from the Chassagne-Montrachet side: Oily spices and pear on the nose. Sweet, intense and a bit exotic, showing a sappy quality to the menthol and banana flavors. Sample #2, from the Puligny side: Less fat than the first sample but still a touch exotic. Good cut gives it a youthfully tight quality. These two components should combine well.
