Chateau de la Maltroye Chassagne-Montrachet situated in the Cote de Beaune this village straddles the divide between great whites and great reds. Sharing Le Montrachet and Batard-Montrachet with the neighbouring Puligny-Montrachet adds to the prestige and fame of the village.

Indeed, the whites made here by Jean-Pierre Cornut are vibrant, intense, and can be thrilling. Chassagne naturally lends power and richness to chardonnay, but Cornut is expertly skilled in retaining and extracting great tangy acidity and mineral depth to match.

But a clear sign of his dedication to the 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.

The Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru ?Clos du Ch?teau? has a sweeter tone, some honeysuckle, and fruit tending toward yellow banana ripeness, it is ample and satisfyingly rich on the palate, some minerality. It is a grander sort of wine.
