 On the south of th Côte de Beaune, the village of Chassagne became Chassagne-Montrachet in the 19th century, thereby benefiting from the notoriety of the mythical Grand Cru which it shares with Puligny. Facing east-south-east, the vineyards are planted with both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay which produces some of the finest white wines in the world. White Chassagne-Montrachet has an intense bouquet and remarkable persistence.
