Description

Les Asteries takes its name from the specific type of limestone found in the Saint Emilion terroir. The stone is incredibly dense and has often been used a building material for its dense qualities. Les Asteries is owned by Jonathan Maltus. Jonathan Maltus is very well-known vintner today in St. Emilion who counts among his holdings wineries including Le Dome, Vieux Chateau Mazerat, Chateau Laforge and Chateau Teyssier. In fact, Les Asteries, which made its official debut in 2005, along with Le Carre. Those 2 wines were the first of the single vineyard wines that Jonathan Maltus produces today.
TASTING: The château takes its name from the type of limestone in the terroir, the hardest limestone available, and one often used for building material because of its strength. Inky and opaque, with intense mineral essences, this full bodied, concentrated wine has a lot of backbone. The wine ends with a blast of ripe, dark plums. The owner, Jonathan Maltus, calls 08 Les Asteries a thinking man’s wine. 89-92 Pts
