One of the most impressive visits for us lately in Burgundy has been at Château de la Maltroye in Chassagne-Montrachet.

In the Côte de Beaune this village straddles the divide between great whites and great reds. Sharing Le Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet with the neighbouring Puligny-Montrachet adds to the prestige and fame of the village.

Indeed, the whites made here by Jean-Pierre Cournut are vibrant, intense, and can be 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.


But a clear sign of his seriousness in village in which he lives and works, he is also one of Chassange-Montrachet’s leading producer of reds. Pinot Noir was once the dominant variety in Chassagne but has today — due to whites commanding higher prices than reds — retreated to just the core of the most suitable terroir for the grape. Prices — for the quality – are modest.

 

We think 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. Well, why not come in and try these for yourself in our store?
