Chassagne Montrachet, situated in the south of the Côte de Beaune, is one of the 5 villages of the prestigious « Côte des Blancs ».
The white wines of Chassagne Montrachet are the most robust of the Côte des Blancs, becoming less delicate and more straight forward as one progresses southward from the Grand Cru vineyards at the Puligny border.
Chardonnay is the only grape variety used for the white wines.
Maison Louis Jadot vinifies the production of growers in this commune with whom they hold purchase agreements based on the quality of the fruit each year.
Grapes are harvested by hand and put in small cases in order not to damage the fruits. Grapes are pressed softly, they ferment in oak barrels produced by our cooperage. 1/3 are new barrels. Aging usually lasts 15 months on fine lies before bottling
A refined wine with white flower and white fleshed fruit aromas allied to nuances of oak and a subtle touch of terroir. The wine is balanced, the acidity is present and just here to support the wine. The mid palate gravitates around fruits, acidity and structure.
