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 last 10 years!
The 2010 Dent de Chien is in stock and we have a conundrum - what to do with a wine that everyone in the world wants? We could easily take it off sale or increase the price (as happens in the USA and Europe). However, we have decided to let our clients buy and experience this wine at the normal price, with one small condition. To secure some of this wine you must spend an equal sum on other wines from Chateau de la Maltroye.
We don't feel this should be too difficult as in addition to the 2010 Dent de Chien we have seven other 2010 whites. They include the Rare Batard-Montrachet (only 300 bottles produced for the entire world) and five more Premier Crus, everyone of which received Burghound's Sweet Spot Award. This includes the "Gorgeously complex" La Romanee and the "extremely stylish" Grandes Ruchottes, both of which scored 94 Points and were amongst the top six Premier Crus of the vintage! Or you can opt for some Chateau de la Maltroye wines from 2007, 2008 and 2009 - we even have a little Dent de Chien available.
Don't miss this opportunity to get acquainted with one of Burgundy's finest producers.
2010 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Dent de Chien
In stock $220.00
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
