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. He 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. Because no actual cellars or chateau for Les Asteries exists, the wine of Les Asteries is made at their other, larger, Right Bank estate, Chateau Teyssier. The modern cellars of Chateau Teyssier insure that all the wine is moved by gravity flow. Vinification takes place in temperature controlled, wood vats and the wine is then aged in up to 100% new, French oak barrels. Best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted braised and grilled dishes.
