Chassagne-Montrachet is one of the five villages of the Côte de Blancs. Premier Cru vineyards face east and southeast, and the Chardonnay grapes are grown in soils of brown clay and limestone. Morgeot is among the top handful of Premier Cru vineyards in the commune; Clos de la Chapelle is an enclosed monopole on the site of an old chapel. The Chardonnay grapes are fermented in oak barrels, and then the wine is barrel matured for 12 to 15 months.

About the Grape

Chardonnay
Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
