CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET 1er Cru Blanchots 2020

We skip the southern wall of Montrachet to set foot in Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Blanchots Dessus. It is also the neighbor of Chassagne 1er Cru Dents de Chiens. it should be noted that part of Blanchots is in the village appellation, it is Blanchots Dessous.


Surface of the production area: small terroir of 1ha 17a 15ca
Altitude: 250-260 m
This terroir was an integral part of the Grand Cru Bâtard-Montrachet appellation until its cutting in the 1930s and its final classification as Premier Cru.
It is quite common with that of the Grand Cru Criot Bâtard-Montrachet. The vines rest on a limestone bedrock from the Middle Jurassic, like all its neighbors. There is a small layer of very fine white clays and a light and well-draining slope which makes it possible to produce very elegant and well-made wines.
