Tasting notes

This is the second vintage produced at Château Maltus; estate owned by the Lassagne family. The exceptional terroir features gravel soils with high iron oxide content. Old Merlot vines of 45 years’ in age flourish here, producing wines of impressive intensity and complexity. Deep purply ruby in colour, these reds are initially restrained, developing subtle ripe fruit aromas, underscored by balsamic notes, cedar and mocha. The palate is highly nuanced and poised; rare traits given the appellation. Finely grained and smooth in texture. This lovely wine is particularly well-made with surprising levels of finesse. A must buy!
