2011 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru
Chateau de la Maltroye's vineyard, Les Grandes Ruchottes, stretches 2883 SQM (0.71 acres). Chardonnay vines averaging 60 years old grow on the parcel located south of Chassagne. The 2011 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Grandes Ruchottes reveals green-tinted straw hue and a luscious nose with ripe fruits: peach, mango, or quince. This Burgundy is powerful, with lovely mineral structure, and a touch of salt on the finish.
