PREMIER GRAND CRU

Château de Malessert

1er Grand Cru - Féchy - Chasselas - 2020

The Premier Grand Cru de Malessert 2020 is characterized by the year’s sunny weather. The Premier Grand Cru terroir is ground moraine, which gives the wine its complexity. It has an aromatic nose of fresh tree fruits. A scattering of floral notes and a fresh minerality pull everything together. On the palate, it is supple and smooth. Acidity on the finish gives the wine its freshness and balance.

The longer this wine is held, the more complex and elegant it will become, revealing honey and walnut aromas in five to ten years. A wine to be left to age in the cellar, without a doubt.

Comments and notes Yves Beck

Good expression of the bouquet which displays complexity thanks to its subtle nuances. It therefore reveals notes of liquorice stick, bread dough and caramel but also scents of Earl Grey. This Chasselas has class and richness but remains balanced, thanks to its temperament, and has a lingering finish. Mineral and saline nuances on the finish. An accomplished wine!

Decanter awards 2022 and tasting notes

Vibrant, with a nose of yellow apple, green tea and acacia, then to a palate of guava, pear and bright citrus.  90/100
