“Picked on 8th September at 13.5% alcohol, with one third new wood, a function of the volume produced. This shows the wood as Maltroie tends to, always a wine, which is a bit in between the fruit and the vinification. Plenty there though and carries the alcohol level well. Tasted: September 2020.”

90   Allen Meadows for Burghound
“An overtly floral-suffused nose reveals additional notes of poached pear and crushed dried herbs. The caressing middle weight flavors are finer though not necessarily denser while exhibiting solid length on the balanced finale. This also needs more depth, but it should be capable of that by the time its fully mature.” (6/2021)

90   William Kelley for Wine Advocate
“Notes of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers, toasted nuts and pastry cream preface the 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Maltroie, a medium to full-bodied, bright and satiny wine with fine depth at the core, tangy acids and good grip on the delicately oak-inflected finish. It was with sadness that I learned of the passing of Michel Niellon while this report was going to press. He must have been content, however, to leave the domaine in such good hands, as his son-in-law, Michel Coutoux, is routinely producing wines of impressively consistent quality and style. 2019 is another fine success, delivering beautifully balanced wines with plenty of concentration and cut. As readers may remember, house fingerprint here is distinctive, with a touch of toasty oak from Saint-Romain’s Tonnellerie Gillet marking each cuvée and the wines dependably distinguishing themselves with lovely texture and concentration. This is a domaine in fine form today, and as I’ve written before, readers who have fallen out of touch with the wines are advised to reacquaint themselves with this excellent producer.” (1/2021)
