Château de la Maltroye, Chassagne-Montrachet Les Grandes Ruchottes 1er Cru 2008

Maltroye Ruchottes 2008

Boston Wine Company, Somerville MA.

Lemon-yellow with golden hints. Custardy decadence yet authoratively flavored; richly colored with broad strokes of frangipane, coconut, drenched orchard fruit. Underneath, he’s electric: the acidity is nervy, with torque like a Charlie and the minerality of Chevalier. The tension between richness and vivacity is dramatic. A great Ruchottes. Now – 2020+.
