The BRILLIANT 2011 Dent de Chien - Don't Miss Our Special Price

Maltroye 2011 Dent Header
It says Premier Cru on the label but this wine is unquestionably Grand Cru quality!

Maltroye's 1er Cru La Dent de Chien is one of the greatest wines in our portfolio. It may say Premier Cru on the label but what comes out of the bottle is without question Grand Cru quality.

But with a string of small vintages this wine, along with all of the best wines of Burgundy, has gone through the roof.

This week I received pricing for the 2013 Chateau de la Maltroye wines. If I was to add a regular margin the 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Dent de Chien would be $383.00! Wow!

We have 29 bottles of the magnificent 2011 in stock. 2011 white Burgundies are much admired by the trade and this wine is no exception. And at the moment you can buy the wine at a very special price which works out at half the theoretical landed price of the 2013! That is value!

Special Only $191.25

Maltroye Dent 2011 Label To be honest I thought I was drinking the 2010! The nose opens with incredible power: flowers, minerals and complexing sulphides, There are white peaches, a little oak and everything is tightly wound. This is a thoroughbred!

There is a huge depth of extract on the palate. Correctly ripe fruit with a steely frame. Closed and structured but oh, so good. You can taste the potential. An incredibly long finish that is vibrant and mineral.

Burghound says of the 2010 "akin to a block of stone at present but the potential is genuinely stunning and it's rare for a 1er to achieve this level of quality" and I feel this applies equally to the 2011.

This wine will outperform many famous name Grand Crus again.
 
If you have not tasted this vineyard you really should. It could very well change your perspective on just how good Premier Cru White Burgundy can be.

Maltroye Batard 2010 Label

 

The Rare and Fantastic 2010 Batard-Montrachet

 

Grand Cru prices have risen even more than Premier Crus and like the Dent de Chien alongside the 2013 version of this wine would be around double what we can sell you the last of the magnificent 2010 vintage for.

 

Only 300 bottles (a single barrel) of the 2010 Batard were produced.


 

It is a great wine.

 

Tanzer: (from vines planted in 1937). Fresh peach, orange oil and spices on the nose. Less obviously minerally today than the Dents de Chien, but dense, tactile and chewy, offering an impression of strong extract to its pineapple and oak flavors. Finishes strong, long and classically dry. Cournut told me these vines were located next to Niellon's holding under Montrachet, in the best part of the cru. "The wine is always fresh and never heavy," he said.
