2021 Château de la Maltroye 'Bâtard-Montrachet' Grand Cru
SKU: B374/FRRegular price $799.95
Situated in Chassagne-Montrachet in the south of the Cote d'Or, Chateau de la Maltroye has been a family property since 1939. It is easily recognizable by its 18th century, glazed tile roof. The vineyard encompasses over 32 acres in Chassagne-Montrachet and 5 acres in Santenay.
Jean-Pierre Cornut, the current wine-grower, has magnificently reinvigorated this domain which now produces some of the best Chassagne-Montrachet on the market. Indeed, the whites made by Jean-Pierre are vibrant, intense, and thrilling. Chassagne naturally lends power and richness to chardonnay, but Cornut is expert in retaining and extracting great tangy acidity and mineral depth to match.
We have a great selection of Chassagne Montrachet village and 1er Crus, including wines from highly sought after vineyards like La Romanee, Les Grandes Ruchottes, and La Dent de Chien. Don't miss the Batard Montrachet Grand Cru...
But a clear sign of his wine-making ability is that he is also one of Chassagne-Montrachet’s leading producer of reds. Pinot Noir was once the dominant variety in Chassagne, but has today retreated to just the core of the most suitable terroir for the grape. His monopole Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru ‘Clos du Chateau’ is one of the village’s best reds, and one of the best quality-for-price reds in Burgundy.
