Flooded with sunshine from sunrise to sunset, the vineyards of Chassagne-Montrachet are one of the finest treasures and most beautiful appellations on the Côte Viticole. Located in the south of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the 5 villages that give the "Côte des Blancs" universal prestige. This appellation comprises 55 Climats classified as Premier Cru. Communes of production: Chassagne-Montrachet and Remigny. 197.66 ha are planted with Chardonnay and 106.45 ha with Pinot Noir.

Tasting notes

Vinification and maturing

The grapes were hand-picked and sorted manually as soon as they arrived at the winery. They were then pressed in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juices without over pressing the grapes. Vinification and ageing took place in wooden barrels with a proportion of 20% new oak. The wine was aged on the lees for 17 months with occasional stirring.

Food and wine pairing

To be tasted with poultry in sauce, lobster, crayfish, asian dishes and cheeses like Comté.
