- Acquired in 1940 by the Cournut family, Maltroye's 18th century chateau sits atop a 15th century cellar. Over 75% of their current estate vineyards came with the purchase. After being handed the reigns by his father, Andre, Jean-Pierre Cournut keeps chemicals to a minimum. The farming is organic, but lutte raisonée. Their wines are classically styled, mineral-rich and broadly balanced.
