Château de la Maltroye is a place that feels like a hidden gem nestled in the heart of Chassagne-Montrachet, in Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune. This family-owned estate, recognizable by its 18th-century glazed tile roof, has been part of the landscape since 1939. It’s not just the château’s striking appearance which captures the heart yet also the soulful wines it produces. 

The vineyard spans over 32 acres in Chassagne-Montrachet and an additional 5 acres in Santenay, creating a tapestry of terroir which is as rich and varied as the history of the region itself. Jean-Pierre Cornut, the current vintner, has infused new life into this domain, crafting some of the most vibrant and intense Chassagne-Montrachet whites you could imagine. The wines are a reflection of the land—powerful and rich, yet with a minerality and tangy acidity which speak to the very essence of Chassagne. 

It’s these personal touches, the blend of tradition and innovation, which make Château de la Maltroye wines not just bottles on a shelf, yet stories waiting to be told with each pour.
