Chateau de la Maltroye is located in Chassagne-Montrachet and has been run by the Cournut family since 1939. The estate stretches over about 16ha in Chassagne-Montrachet and 2ha in Santenay. Production consists of 65% white and 35% red wine an impressive 70% of total production is under the Premier Cru or Grand Cru designation! They own parts of the 3 best plots in Chassagne: La Romanee, Dent de Chien and Les Grandes Ruchottes. With a total of 12 different Chassagne-Motrachet 1er cru, Chateau de la Maltroye is the largest owner of Chassagne-Montrachet 1er cru vineyards.

Since Jean-Pierre Cournut took over the business from his father in 1993, the estate has been revitalised and the wines are among the very best in the region. The wines are bottled in the Château's old 15th-century cellars.

Clos du Chateau is the plot right in front of the Chateau itself where both white and red wines are produced. The soil consists of clay-limestone with south-east orientation, this exposes the grapes to extra sunlight which creates both richness and minerality.

The wine is aged for 12 months in oak, 1/3 of which is in new barrels. The result is very representative of the estate's white wines; rich, powerful, reductive, mineral and fruit-driven.

The colour is bright gold with complex aromas of ripe stone fruit with tropical notes, burnt almond and butter. On the palate an accelerate the aromas into similar flavours, broad, generous but with lovely freshness with a long finish.
