Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos du Chateau de la Maltroye" Monopole 2009, Chateau de la Maltroye
A fifth wine in a blind-tasting of six Chassagnes premier crus. This monopole wine from the posh and arty Chateau de la Maltroye was the most rich and obviously luxurious wine tasted. Aromas of creme brulee, deep and sexy, pastry, lemon tart, creme anglaise. This 2009 is very rich on the palate, spicy, some underlying resin, long, rounded with ripe tree fruit. More house style dare I say than anything to do with the terroir. But when its a monopole there is no comparison possible. Enjoyed by the team but not set on a podium.
