Chateau de la Maltroye Chassagne Rouge

A mammoth wine of unparalleled length and complexity, the Chateau Rouge is loaded with dark cherry, violets and hints of earth, the finish goes on for minutes. Rich, sappy Pinot Noir fruit is underlain by subtle notes of minerals and underbrush, all conveyed on a nearly weightless body. The grapes for this wine enjoy temperature-controlled fermentation, and the wine ages in barrel for 14 to 18 months before bottling. Just entering its drinking window, this wine will drink for a half a decade or more.
