The wines that Cornut presents are unmistakably tenors, not sopranos. He carefully and judiciously matches a variety of oak barrels in differing quantities to each cuvee to accentuate the qualities of each individual climat. That, coupled with the wines' phenomenal extraction gives these wines a sophistication that is unique. It is no longer necessary for us to detail the turnaround that occurred at Chateau de la Maltroye in the early 1990s. It is more proper today to discuss the wines in terms of their place in the hierarchy of Burgundy's finest.
