We are fans of the Maltroie Cru and F-G makes a great example. Maltroie has a high concentration of iron oxides in the soil, which give it plenty of the spicier notes that distinguishes Chardonnay from this village. A great choice for a classy white Burgundy.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 90
"The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie delivers a pretty bouquet of pear, waxy citrus rind and almond paste. Medium to full-bodied, its satiny attack segues into a nicely concentrated core that's underpinned by lively acids, concluding with a precise finish." -William Kelley
