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. This Premier Cru wine has been selected from the best parcels of land where the grapes are exposed to the maximum amount of sunshine which ensures optimum ripeness before the harvest. The word Chassagne comes from either the Latin cassanea which means an oak wood or cassanus which means oak. Until the late 19th Century the main settlement of this commune was known as Chassagne-le-Haut. However in 1879, in common with other villages in the Côte d'Or, the village was allowed to change its name replacing le Haut with name of their most famous Grand Cru Montrachet.
The wine is bold and full of tropical fruit with a powerful and lingering appeal on the palate.
