Description

Located in the South of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the villages, together with Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, making up the celebrated ‘Côte des Blancs’. The name comes from ‘cassanos’, a Celtic word used for a place where oak trees grow, and ‘rachet’ meaning a poor, dry, infertile soil, a paradox when thinking of the richness of the Chassagne-Montrachet wines!

Light golden colour. Intense nose of flower, brioche and candied lemon aromas, evolving towards nuances of grilled hazelnut and spice as the wine matures. On the palate, the wine is straightforward, with a nice texture and finesse. It has a long aftertaste where floral and gingerbread notes dominate.
