Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Bold yet detailed, intense yet nuanced, succulent but mineral-laden, the ’16 Grandes Ruchottes dwells in tantalizing opposites. Sappy orchard, citrus, and stone fruits cavort against a backdrop of saline minerality, honeysuckle, petrol, spices and crushed rocks in this compelling, blockbuster Grandes Ruchottes vintage. At once stylish and primal, this wine fills the mouth with texture, energy, dry extract, and a sweet inner lift, all of its disparate elements coalescing into a seamless, harmonious whole. This wine is likely to be legendary! Maltroye’s parcel of Grandes Ruchottes is a scant acre of sixty-year-old vines, but that small parcel is responsible for one of the estate’s most esteemed, renowned wines. Maltroye’s Jean-Pierre Cornut ferments whole clusters of Chardonnay in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and then ages the wine for a year in oak barrels, one-third new, before bottling the wine with light filtration.
