The BRILLIANT 2011 Dent de Chien

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

 

I couldn't help myself. This was the first white I opened after the arrival of our container last week.

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. The 2010 was nothing less than magnificent so I was very eager to try the 2011.

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.
 
The wine is in stock but until midnight tonight you can buy it at our Pre Arrival Price. The wine comes with my personal recommendation. It is a stunner! 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.
