Jonathan Maltus's father was an expatriate working for Standard Chartered bank in Africa, which is where Jonathan grew up. Having had a successful career in the oil industry Jonathan bought Château Teyssier in St Emilion in the 1990s. Acquisitive and ever-keen to experiment, Jonathan has met with adulation and criticism in seemingly equal doses. His top wine is Le Dôme, the St Emilion with the highest proportion of Cabernet Franc from a vineyard near Château Angélus. He added a neighbouring vineyard from whcih he makes a wine called Vieux Château Mazerat. In addition, he produces wine under the following labels, all St Emilion: Les Astéries; Le Carré; Laforge, and, of course, Teyssier. In addition, he makes a white wine called Nardian.

Really aromatic wine; aromas of pot pourri and dry spice. Lovely, cool, medium weight palate full of spice. Delightful, rich, fine-grained tannins and the medium acidity are really well cached by the fruit. Long and lovely, with a nuttily tannic finish. This should be excellent value. Bowes Wine original note
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
