    Jonathan Maltus, a British citizen, bought his first vines in the 1990s in Saint-Emilion, with the aim of creating a vineyard made up of plot selections in the image of the great Burgundian estates. His plots are worked and vinified separately, with a heritage of old vines managed at low yields (30 hl/ha) in order to draw the quintessence of each terroir. Remarkable vintages, little known in France but much sought after by English and American wine lovers.

    Le Carré, the second single-vineyard cuvée of Mr Maltus, comes from a 1.05 hectare (square) plot, bought in 2001 from Ch. Canon and located next to Clos Fourtet. The predominantly clay soil on a layer of limestone allows the Merlot (85%) to express all its richness and exuberance.

    Galloni (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The 2019 Le Carré is a powerful, virile wine. Swaths of tannin enshroud a core of dark ruit, while smoke, tobacco, game, iron and black fruits give the 2019 a distinctly wild, feral quality that is impossible to miss. The 2019 finishes with real drive and tons of pure intensity. The Cabernet Franc is decidedly vivid. The 2019 will likely need a few years in bottle to be at its best, but it sure is impressive today. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The palate kicks up a gear with fine tannins and attractive cracked black pepper notes literally sprinkled over the black fruit and a long, satisfying aftertaste. Good potential here. »

Remarkable vintages, little known in France but much sought after by English and American wine lovers.

    Produced from 2003, Les Astéries comes from a plot of 1.2 ha on the plateau, from century-old vines (planted in 1920) bought from Ch. Fonroque, and takes its name from the astery-limestone that makes up its soil. Even if it is 80% Merlot, Les Astéries is a great fresh and long wine, with a marked acid support, almost sharp, expressing all the minerality of the famous "iron dross" present at less than 40 cm deep.

    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Les Astéries is another fabulous wine in this range from Jonathan Maltus. A rush of blackberry jam, spice, mocha, white chocolate and licorice builds in a Saint-Émilion endowed with tremendous textural resonance and intensity. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « The 2019 Les Astéries has a charming bouquet with small dark cherries, crushed violet and inky aromas, all neatly integrated with the new oak - lush but controlled and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, cohesive and poised with fine tension and complexity towards the finish. This might well turn out to be Jonathan Malthus' best release this vintage. »

    Born in 1996, Le Dôme is his first micro vintage (3.61 ha), coming from 3 contiguous plots near Ch. Angélus, halfway up the hillside. Predominantly Cabernet Franc (80%, vines planted in 1960-1970), Le Dôme is an intense, deep wine with an impressive tannic structure carefully coated, with a long finish.

    Galloni (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The 2019 Le Dôme is a wine of pure and total sensuality. Far more restrained than it can be, the 2019 possesses tremendous nuance and plenty of intensity, but it is also less of a bruiser than it can be. There is so much going on. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The 2019 Le Dôme has an expressive bouquet that really gets a handle on the Cabernet Franc: blackberry, loamy soil, delicate pressed flowers and a touch of cedar coming through. [...] The palate is medium-bodied with freshness to the fore and touches of tobacco and graphite infuse the black fruit. Tannic towards the finish with a vivid spicy/cracked black pepper aftertaste that lingers in the mouth. Superb. »
