Château La Maletonne

Haute Valeur environnementale

MÉDOC AOC – BORDEAUX – FRANCE

Château La Maletonne is an estate located in Saint-Seurin de Cadourne. It belongs to Chantal BOYER, who produced her first vintage in 2018.

This small 2-hectare estate is exclusively planted to Merlot, which makes it quite an original exception.

The result is a classic and supple Médoc wine, round and fruity, with predominant blackcurrant and liquorice flavours, and a touch of wood.

Certified HVE3 as of the 2018 vintage.
