1er Cru Les Chenevottes
Flooded with sunshine from sunrise to sunset, the Chassagne-Montrachet vineyard is one of the most beautiful assets
and one of the most beautiful appellations of the Côte Viticole.
In the southern part of the Côte de Beaune Chassagne-Montrachet shares with Puligny the incontested title of the prince of the world’s dry white wines – the divine Montrachet. This fine, broad hillside brings out the very highest expression of the two Burgundian grapes - the Pinot Noir and the Chardonnay, which grow here side-by side - such is the complexity of the district's « terroirs » !
Extensive marble quarries, which form a kind of cliff face, were the source of the pink and beige flagstones which went into the building of the Trocadero in Paris and more recently the Louvre Pyramid.
The 1er cru Les Chenevottes is located near the prestigious Montrachet. This climate must have been a chenevière at the time it was named. It was a field where hemp was grown.
