Made from Chardonnay grapes. The soils are deeper in this plot, similar to Vergers vs. more gravel in the Maltroie down the road. These are bigger, richer wines with length and minerality.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie was taken from tank but had not been fined. This has a lovely, minerally bouquet reminding me of a limestone cave. The palate is fresh and tensile with a fine bead of acidity, very harmonious and poised with a nuanced, peach skin and dried apricot finish. There are just seven barrels this year, but each one is excellent-as good as the 2015 last year.
