Situated in the south of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the five villages that make up the prestigious Côte des Blancs. At altitudes varying from 250 to 350 meters, the vineyards benefit from exposures ranging from east to south and southwest and the wine comes mainly from marly limestone soils. After a long fermentation in tanks, the wine is aged in barrel before bottling.

harvest note

2016 began with frost, resulting in smaller crops, but the smaller crop allowed for ripening well into September due to cool, dry, and sunny weather. While yields were low, excellent white wines were produced. The 2016 vintage is unfolding to be an amazing one.

tasting note

A deeply colored, full-bodied wine of depth and intensity with a persistent, earthy finish.

food pairing

An excellent companion to fish, shellfish, poultry and cheeses.
