Saint Emilion Grand Cru
“Since purchasing the estate in 1994, Jonathan and Lyn Maltus have raised the quality of Château Teyssier to rival that of the Crus Classés" Steven Spurrier.
CHATEAU TEYSSIER is situated in the heart of the Saint Emilion Appellation. The Estate is steeped in history that dates back to the 1700’s, but by the time that Jonathan and Lyn Maltus arrived in 1994, the vineyard consisted of fourteen acres in the commune of Vignonet on the plain of Saint Emilion.
The vineyards now extend to over one hundred and thirty acres under vine, a large part of which are situated amongst Cru Classé terroir on the cotes hugging the village of Saint Emilion.
The main building is Napoleonic from the Second Empire and is home for the Maltus family – Jonathan, Lyn and their sons Jamie and Jack. The winery, cellar, bottling and storage buildings have been completely restored or reconstructed in a style that emulates this period.
Eight wines are produced ranging from our Estate wines (blended wines from different parcels given the name ‘Château’) to limited-release Single Vineyard wines.
Napa Valley, USA
“This is the North American Napa Valley outpost of Jonathan Maltus, who has a splendid reputation for his high quality offerings from Saint Emilion” Robert Parker.
WORLD’S END, named after the district of Chelsea, London where Jonathan and Lyn first lived, is the culmination of over 20 years of winemaking in Saint Emilion, Bordeaux and overseas by Jonathan Maltus and his team.
2008 marked the beginning of what became a love affair between our French-inspired winemaking and viticultural approach and the beautiful landscape and terroir of the Napa Valley. Close cropping, double-sorting, lees in suspension, French oak are part of the norm.
Emulating the estate in Bordeaux, WORLD’S END offers Single Vineyard wines from valley, ridge, and mountain and Reserve, varietal wines that will reflect the general diversity of the Napa Valley as a whole.
Eight wines are made, living up to the reputation of producing ‘Old World wines in the New World’.
