Chateau de la Maltroye Chassagne Montrachet la Romanée 2016


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Château de la Maltroye is a beautiful 18th century château with 15th century cellars located at the top of the hill in Chassagne-Montrachet. The Cournut family bought the estate in 1940 and today it is Jean-Pierre Cournut at the helm who is an extremely thoughtful, serious winemaker whom we have had the pleasure of getting to know over the last 15 years while tasting his new vintage each year. Important parcels, old vines and traditional winemaking are reflected in his offerings.Château de la Maltroye’s vineyards are located right next to the château and are considered to be some of the best Premier Cru vineyards in the village. From a total production of 60,000 bottles per year, 60% is white Chassagne-Montrachet, with an intense minerality and subtle scent of oak. Exporter and Burgundy Expert Jeanne-Marie de Champs explains, “The wines of Château de la Maltroye are made with the precision of an engineer, precise detail, a constant search for the best expression of the microclimates and terroirs, and harmony with the wood.”

International Wine CellarPale, bright yellow. Aromas of orange oil, mint, menthol and crushed stone. Juicy, intense citrus fruit flavors are complicated by saline minerality. Not yet especially complex but sharply delineated, dry and classic, finishing with excellent subtle length. Cournut uses about 35% new oak for most of his premier crus but more like 60% to 70% for this wine and the Dents de Chien.

BurghoundThe hallmark innate exoticism of La Romanée is on display with its notes of white peach, gardenia, lychee nut and citrus scents that are trimmed in just enough wood to warrant mentioning. I very much like the gorgeous mouth feel of the medium-bodied flavors that culminate in an almost delicate and sneaky long finish. While this can sometimes be bold and robust, in 2016 this is a wine of finesse and refinement.
