2010 Bordeaux – The Wines of Jonathan Maltus

by Charles Lea

I had a great visit to see our old neighbour Jonathan Maltus this year (he used to live in Limerston Street, round the corner from our Chelsea shop). It is fair to say he has got a bit bulkier since then. One of the original ‘garagistes‘, Jonathan is now a major producer, and his well placed single vineyards are all exceptional wines and come recommended. – read my notes below, but do click the wine names to see the critics’ comments on the website. The winemaking here has been becoming increasingly refined, and these are exciting wines.
