Chateau Maltus Lalande de Pomerol
Vignobles Lassagne
France - Bordeaux - Lalande de Pomerol AOC

This is the newest project from Nicolas Lassagne (Chateau des Landes).
He acquired this 2.5 ha (6.17 acres) parcel in 2015.
Lalande de Pomerol AOC is 1,100 hectares in size producing more than 500,000 cases per year.

Beautiful sustained deep purple color.
The Bouquet is rich, generous, complex and reveals notes of black fruits. The iron-rich soil gives a fat and metallic taste, which many associates with truffles. The palate is round and powerful with some good integrated tannins. The finish is long and structured.

Origin of the name:
History tells us that the origin of the Chateau Maltus goes back to the Middle Ages, in the time of the crusades. The Order of Malta, well implanted on the land named Lalande de Pomerol, cultivated for the first time vines on the grounds of the Chateau Maltus.

wine enthusiast 90 pts"This structured wine is dense and packed with ripe, jammy Merlot. The richness of the wine is balanced by acidity and emphasized by the dark chocolate and full aftertaste. Drink the wine from 2022. - Roger Voss"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"A blend of 80/20 Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Chateau Maltus spent 18 months in French oak before bottling. This deep ruby/purple-colored Lalande-de-Pomerol boasts outstanding notes of chocolate covered cherries, blackcurrants, dried earth, and licorice. With medium body, a rounded, mouthfilling texture, and supple tannins, it’s an incredibly charming, delicious 2016 to drink over the coming 8-10 years."

wine enthusiast 90 pts"The 30% Cabernet Franc in the blend makes all the difference to this rich perfumed wine. It has tannins and plenty of spicy flavors from wood fermentation and aging. The secret, though, is that it also has rich layered blackberries and the acidity to give the wine a lift. Drink from 2020. - Roger Voss"
