"...penetratingly mineral-driven flavors that culminate in an almost painfully intense, saline and explosive finish. This is positively breathtaking ...genuinely stunning and it's rare for a 1er to achieve this level of quality"

Burghound Issue 47, 3rd Quarter 2012

 

Burghound's tasting notes for the 2010 Chateau de la Maltroye wines leave little doubt as to the quality of this domaine and their wines. The 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Dent de Chien received a massive 95 Points - the highest score for a 1er Cru white and the only 1er to receive such a rating. It outscored Grand Crus including Le Montrachet from many other well known producers.

 

To put some perspective on how high the score is you simply need to look back over Burghound's notes for the last decade. Only 7 other 1er Cru whites have scored this high in the previous 10 years! 

 

We discovered 2 Cases of the 2010 Dent de Chien which we are delighted to offer a terrific price for such a highly rated wine.

Just 3 barrels in 2010. This is an exceptional site adjoining Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet. The vines were planted in 1936 on some very difficult land.

 

Burghound: A pungent nose of mineral reduction, various citrus elements and dried flowers serves as an elegant introduction to the penetratingly mineral-driven flavors that culminate in an almost painfully intense, saline and explosive finish. This is positively breathtaking as the intensity really does a slow build from the concentrated mid-palate to the massively persistent finale. Note that this needs plenty of cellar time as it's 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. A Sweet Spot Wine. 95 Points
