Lestime Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Maltroie 2017


The premier cru “Maltroie” vineyard lies in the center of the town of Chassagne-Montrachet, just feet from the Gagnard domaine. It produces regal, classic Chassagne, showing depth and golden richness. While this cuvée doesn’t quite match the splendor of the Clos de la Maltroye under the JN Gagnard label, it comes with far friendlier pricing, and an extra two years of bottle age.

From one of the top white Burgundy vintages of the last decade, the 2017 Lestimé Chassagne 1er cru “La Maltroie” is still fresh and youthful after two years in the bottle. The nose is pretty and sophisticated, with notes of white flowers and hazelnut. The mouth is deep and powerful, every bit a premier cru – look for notes of baked lemon, silky sleek texture, and a long vibrant finish. This is Caroline showing offer just how good a winemaker she is, and we’re happy to be along for the ride.
