Chateau de la Maltroye Chassagne Montrachet Clos du Chateau de la Maltroye 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Perfection on details, no comparison, the full expression of Terroirs associated with the best elevage possible and the best association of oak barrels.

" Owner Andre Cournut passed the torch in 1995 to his son Jean-Pierre and the quality of the wines have improved markedly. Extensive work in the vineyards to improve the quality of fruit that he harvests enables him to make the most of his beautifully renovated cuverie and cellar. Creme brulee with a really aggressive mint leaf and nut aspect...like an imaginary walnut ate an almond

Owner Andre Cournut passed the torch in 1995 to his son Jean-Pierre and the quality of the wines have improved markedly. Extensive work in the vineyards to improve the quality of fruit that he harvests enables him to make the most of his beautifully renovated cuverie and cellar. Creme brulee with a really aggressive mint leaf and nut aspect...like an imaginary walnut ate an almond, and then it got dropped into a custard dessert. Mmmmmmm! On the palate, its got a really delightful flavor (and I don't use delightful often)... the french bakery, custard and dessert-like flavors present themselves, but then the club soda acidity counterbalances it all. The dessert comes back on the finish, along with a banana bread thing. The green banana flavors make this wine really exotic and fun. I'd be remiss not to mention that this wine is loaded with smoked, burnt wood. Complex is an understatement.

Jean-Pierre Cournut is one of the vignerons of Chassagne who is most serious and successful with Pinot Noir. Displaying a light-to-medium ruby color and a lovely nose of ripe black cherries, the Chassagne-Montrachet has a richly-textured, concentrated, dark fruit-filled, and mineral driven personality, a medium body, and excellent length.
