Tasting Notes

The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Maltroie was more aromatically reticent, unwinding with notes of minty apples and toasted nuts, followed by a satiny, open-knit palate that's bright and stony but seems to be somewhat less concentrated than either the Champs Gain that preceded it or the superb Clos Saint-Jean that followed it. It may simply be closed down after its recent bottling, but it wouldn't appear to be the star of the show this year.

Score: 88William Kelley, Wine Advocate, January 2019

Bright light yellow. Expressive nose combines pear, honey, menthol and flowers. Ripe, fine-grained and nicely concentrated, showing more gras than the Chaumées "Clos de la Truffière" but also healthy acidity and floral lift. A bit aggressive on the back end but not spiky, finishing with very good length.
