Wine Advocate | Rating: 89The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Maltroie has an attractive bouquet with orange blossom, clear honey and a touch of pralines - all very generous. The palate is well balanced with a lightly honeyed entry, a fine fatness here but perhaps just missing a little persistence on the finish at the moment. It is outflanked by the domaine's other premier crus at this moment, but should meliorate by the time of bottling.Author: Neal Martin
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
