Wine Information
This appellation lies along the south border of the vast Morgeot territory, running along the lane which separates it from La Boudriotte 1er Cru. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir both grow here. In the Village appellation, red wine production is far greater in Chassagne-Montrachet with around 100 hectares of red vines as opposed to roughly 60 hectares for white vines.

Grapes for this wine come from two similar plots: one parcel is in the upper part of the appellation (just under the road to Santenay) and the other on the lower part. 

Approximately 200 cases of this cuvée are made each year.
