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.

The individual lieu-dit of Clos Saint-Jean covers just over 5ha on the eastern slope of the Côte d'Or. The soil is defined by a large quarry on the hillside above Clos Saint-Jean. This provides a gravel and limestone layer supported by the limestone as we know it in the Côte d'Or.

Both white and red wines are produced but it is mainly the reds that capture the imagination, despite their often lighter color they are rich and ripe. A subtle wood application is also noticeable in this wine on the spicy purple fruit and soft earthy scents. The wine rich with lots of juice, structured medium flavors with nice concentration, good length with slightly mineral finish
