The Chassagne-Montrachet appellation is located in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune and produces mainly white wines.

"Very unique lime, stone and smoke aromas follow through to a medium body with a tangy finish. Stone and mineral undertones. Dense. Layered, yet vibrant. Fantastic. Drink or hold."
