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 Château 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 Château Maltus.
