The village of Chassagne Montrachet lies on the border between the Cote d’Or and the Saone et Loire departments, cut off from the rest of the Cote de Beaune. As its name suggests, the appellation claims a share of the famous Montrachet grand cru vineyard. Chassagne produces lovely white wines that can rival those of Puligny Montrachet, yet it also produces some very good red wines too. The whites seem somehow more relaxed, vaguely softer and less edgy – full and firm, less definitive perhaps than those of Puligny, but with a better grip than the majority of Meursaults.
