Le Montrachet is shared by the communes of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. The vineyard terroir is very chalky and stony for perfect drainage but has the potential to overheat in the sunny, south–southeast exposure. The Chardonnay grapes are fermented and matured in oak barrels for 18 to 20 months.

Vineyard Details

Côte de Beaune Grands Crus
Soil and aspect are crucial to Grand Cru vineyard siting, and soils vary widely in the Côte de Beaune. The Grand Cru white Montrachet is perfectly situated on a strip of east-facing limestone for an intense wine of great depth and aging potential. Surrounding Grands Crus include Chevalier-Montrachet, on stonier soil, and Bâtard-Montrachet, on heavier soil. At the northern border of the Côte de Beaune, the hill of Corton produces both a white and a red Grand Cru: the white on the upper south- and west-facing slopes on brown marl soil with limestone washed down from above; the powerful red is produced on a band below the white.
