Montrachet Grand Cru


Côte de Beaune


AOC Grand cru

Grape variety


A legend, a symbol, a part of Burgundy's heritage… the Montrachet is also a world reference among the greatest Chardonnays. The jewel of winegrowing Burgundy, this appellation straddles the communes of Chassagne and Puligny. The name Montrachet is derived from "Mont Rachaz" (1252) or "Mont Chauve", in reference to the stony, barren aspect of the hill (in old French, "râche" meant "bald" ("chauve").


Intense, complex nose featuring scents of white-fleshed fruit, dried fruit, nuts and spices complemented by delicate vanilla and toasted nuances. Very round and full bodied on the palate, Montrachet represents a harmonious alliance between richness, power and mineral structure. This is a grand, sophisticated wine that boasts remarkable length.
