Chateau de La Maltroye 2016 - Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Blanc, Clos de la Maltroye, Monopole 750 ml.
Subregion: Cote de Beaune
Size: 750 ml.
In the southern part of the Côte de Beaune Chassagne-Montrachet shares with Puligny the uncontested title of the prince of the world’s dry white wines: the divine Montrachet (pronounced “Monrachay”). This fine, broad hillside brings out the very highest expression of the two Burgundian grapes - the Pinot Noir and the Chardonnay, which grow here side-by side - such is the complexity of the region’s soils! Extensive marble quarries, which form a kind of cliff face, were the source of the pink and beige flagstones which went into the building of the Trocadero in Paris and more recently the Louvre Pyramid. The Chassagne- Montrachet AOC dates from 1937. It includes some plots in the neighbouring village of Remigny which share the same soil conditions.
