  • Chassagne Montrachet, situated to the South of Puligny-Montrachet, is well known for being the last famous appellation of the Côte de Beaune. The parcel "Les Vergers" is located near Saint-Aubin and in the past it was planted with fruit trees. The vines are planted on a very stony hillside with an Easterly exposure, hence they gain a perfect maturity before being harvested.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    The Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru « Les Vergers » 2011 is of a pretty shimmering, golden colour. On the nose, one discovers aromas of yellow fruits, brioche and vanilla. It is very ample in the mouth with lovely sappy notes and lots of freshness on the finish.
