‘The 2014 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Maltroye has a very elegant bouquet; there is just a hint of licorice here with citrus peel and Japanese yellow plum. I love the exoticism here without compromising delineation. The palate is fresh on the entry with citrus lemon mixed with almond and lemon curd. There is a slight waxiness to the texture, as well as good depth and delineation with a long finish. One of Caroline L'Estimé’s racier and opulent offerings...’ 91-93 points, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate. Dec 2015
'Resin and petrol hints are abundantly apparent on the overtly citrus and floral-suffused nose where the citrus elements also infuse the nicely vibrant and delineated medium weight flavours that deliver fine length on the markedly dry finale… Will almost certainly develop in time.’ 90 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound.
‘…solid and concentrated… with a fine mineral tang on the long finish.’ 90 points, Stephen Brook, Decanter.
The whites are full-bodied, powerful, and fat, with aromas of almonds (green or toasted, depending on the age of the wine), ripe apples, white flowers, and honey, The finish is remarkably long.
The reds are deeply colored, full-bodied, and often quite fleshy, with classic aroma of cherry or kirsch and blackcurrant. Their firm structure is reminiscent of a wine from the Côte de Nuits.
