Chassagne-Montrachet

Terroir

In the south of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet shares with Puligny the uncontested Prince of all dry white wines in creation: the divine Montrachet.

Vinification & Elevage

The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small crates to prevent the bunches being compacted. For our white wines, the grapes are brought whole to our pneumatic wine press. Slow gentle pressing allows the juices to be extracted in the best possible conditions. These juices are then placed in a settling vat and cooled to 8° for 24 hours to clarify them. Lastly, they are placed directly in oak barrels (30 % of which are new) for alcoholic fermentation over 14 months.

Commentaries by our oenologist

Our Chassagne-Montrachet displays remarkable aromatic length. To the nose, notes of dry fruits, kernels and white flowers develop to reveal a very attractive bouquet. In the mouth, this wine is well balanced with a beautiful full body. Its long finish is perfumed with floral accents.

Food pairing

Salmon terrine, veal sweetbreads with morels, monkfish tail with lobster bisque.
