Productinformation

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.

This plot of just over 1ha is located in the south of the appellation and is known for its chalky, mineral soil. The vines are more than 60 years old which makes for nice concentration. Harvesting is generally done early to preserve fraîche and clarity of fruit. Like most of Maltroye's wines, the first impression is one of reduction. With some air, the distinct, lively stone fruit character of peaches and almonds emerges. The wine's texture and richness grows on the palate.
