Description
  • 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.
