Chassagne-Montrachet is located to the south of Puligny-Montrachet in the Côte de Beaune and is one of Burgundy's greatest white wine appellations. As its name suggests this small parcel of just 0.5 hectares is situated right at the top of the slope of the Montagne de Chassagne at an altitude of 310 metres. It is a safely hidden treasure, surrounded by vegetation and only accessible by a small dirt track.
Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru "La Grande Montagne" displays a beautiful gold hue. The nose develops yellow fruits, salted butter caramel and vanilla aromas. It is long and fresh on the palate with notes of almond paste and a salty finish.
8 to 10 months ageing in oak barrels, 50% new
