Tasting Notes

A prominent vineyard in the centre of the village, next to the Church, Maltroie is a very complete wine and this was an exceptional showing. Stonefruits, orange blossoms and a fragrant honey on the nose with the depth of old vines really showing on the palate. There is a delicate spiciness which just adds more character and although there is clearly more flesh and weight, the acidity keeps everything in check and ensures a crisp, clean finish. The final notes of ripe peach and crème caramel bring you back for more. Richard confesses that he has a particular weakness for this wine this year. Drink from 2009.

Reviews & Scores

Aromas of honey and white flowers are very typical Chassagne but a bit less precise than those of the last couple of samples. Then citrussy and quite dry in the mouth, with a chewy, old-viney texture and firm acidity. Very different in style from the Vergers, and more austere on the aftertaste. 88-91 points

TASTING NOTES

Rich, leesy, mealy wine with notes of lemon and pink grapefuit, sherbet and a considerable sense of dimension here. Oak showing too but very well integrated with the zippy fruit. The finish reverberates, comes back time and again with another wave of flavour. Terrific wine. 83 Sem : 17 SB
