Discover the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation
The Chassagne-Montrachet AOC is located on a 305 hectares vineyard, between 220 and 325 meters of altitude. It grows in a limestone and pebble soil, sometimes even in marls or sand, in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune (in the Burgundy region). The wines of this village appellation can legally add the climates’ names to their labels, and a few of them are even classified as Premier Cru. The most well-known ones come from the following localities: En Remilly, Clos Saint-Jean, Les Champs Gain, Boudriotte, Morgeot, Blanchots-Dessus and Les Dents de Chien.
The Chassagne-Montrachet shares its vineyard with two other Puligny appellations, which are also quite famous all over the world: the Montrachet (5.93 hectares) and the Bâtard-Montrachet (nearly 12 hectares). Both Grands Crus white wines. The Chassagne-Montrachet AOC includes two grape varieties (the Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir), growing side by side, which can produce some excellent white and red wines. They are equally distributed across the entire vineyard, for a total production of 15,000 hectoliters of wine per year.
