Chassagne-Montrachet

The village or commune of Chassagne-Montrachet is the most southerly of the important or major villages in the Cote de Beaune, and unusually for the significant villages, produces both red and white wines in nearly equal quantities (although the whites are considered superior).chassagne.jpg

Chassagne-Montrachet shares the greatest white wine vineyard, Montrachet (or more accurately, Le Montrachet) with neighbouring Puligny-Montrachet on an almost 50/50 basis, and likewise Batard-Montrachet is also shared.  However Chassagne claims the smallest (1.75ha) white grands cru vineyard Criot-Batard-Montrachet entirely to itself.

Alongside these grands crus, there are no less than 51 distinct premiers crus, covering some 100 hectares, although many of the vineyards are entitled to be named as other premiers crus so many names are rarely, if ever, designated.
