The 2016 La Maltroie Chassagne Montrachet is utterly fascinating. It instantly impresses as it opens to breathtaking aromatics of Asian pear, lemon oil, vanilla blossoms, crushed stones and a gorgeous saline character that all come together beautifully in the glass. On the palate this displays wonderful purity with a gorgeous textural richness, as well as impeccable balance. It possesses the perfect combination of acidity and saline infused minerality which persists all the way through the precise finish. This magnificent wine has it all and is extremely accessible today, however it also displays the potential to continue to evolve gracefully for at least another decade.
