Vineyards situation : Le Montrachet is situated to the south of the Côte de Beaune, on both villages of Puligny Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet (like the Batard Montrachet Grand Cru).

Characteristics : The terroir is extremely chalky with a lot of stones, perfectly drained and easy to overheat with south-south-eastern exposition. The Montrachet is produced with 100% Chardonnay grapes

Wine making : This wine is fermented in wooden barrels like all our Grands Crus from the Côte d'Or area, and then aged in barrels during 18-20 months before bottling. This vinification highlights the unique qualities inherent in the fruit of this great vineyard.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy : Le Montrachet has a very nice, bright and shiny gold colour. It is a complex and powerful wine. Its comparable depth, intense fruit elegance, and layers of complex, textural richness, reflected in a sublime bouquet reminiscent of honey toast, culminate with a persistent finish. This wine best suits « haute cuisine » : ‘crustacés à la nage', poached fish in cream sauce, liver pâtés.

Preservation : This wine will age for 15-20 years in good conditions of temperature and humidity.
