Château de la Maltroye Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc
Château de la Maltroye Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc is a rich, toasty and buttery showstopper Chardonnay. The bouquet opens with a popcorn surprise before leading into stone fruit aromas and just a hint of hazelnut. Medium to full-bodied and dry on the palate with a crisp acidity. Buttery mouthfeel with a flavour profile that is an astonishing cocktail of apple, apricot, brioche and caramel.
100% Chardonnay. When it comes to the world's greatest white wines, the border between Chassagne and Puligny is the treasure at the end of the rainbow. The fruit for this wine comes from a selection of the estate's village-level vineyards spread across Chassagne-Montrachet in the Burgundy region. You'll find some of the world's finest white wines in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet.
Winemaker Jean-Pierre Cornut continues the family tradition, hand-picking Chardonnay grapes and selecting only the best grapes to create the finest white Burgundy. After pressing, the wine ages for 10 months in oak.
