Jonathan Maltus's Story
Grand Cru quality Bordeaux for under $30 a bottle
I’ve personally wanted to work with Jonathan since hearing this interview in 2009 (you can even see I posted in the comment section).
He’s a smart guy who moved to Bordeaux decades ago and bought Chateau Teyssier. He revitalized the estate, bought up the best vineyards in the area and made small lots of delicious wines.
Many Bordeaux chateaux just made their main wine and a secondary wine. Maltus started making tiny amounts of single-vineyard wines (volumes so small you could make them in a garage) along with several peers at the time like Jean Luc Thunevin and Stephan von Neipperg.
He’s made legendary wines and changed the way people think about Bordeaux and Saint Emilion. Angel funding could give him even more resources to change how Bordeaux works. Imagine real Bordeaux, grand cru quality, coming in at Angel prices under $30 a bottle!
Wine has become a hobby for me. I enjoy trying new wines and am constantly learning. A perfect night for me is sitting home with family, enjoying a nice dinner, a game of cards, and few bottles of good wine!
