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. The fermentation takes place in oak barrels, after which they are aged in barrel for 18 months before being bottled.
