Le Montrachet

Le Montrachet is the most famous and sought-after Grand Cru white Burgundy, the title of which the villages of Chassagne and Puligny use as a suffix to their names. The vineyard spans 8 ha accross both the Puligny and Chassagne communes. Its poor limestone soils and south east-exposure, which ensures the vines are sunblanched from sunrise to sunset, result in ripe, full-bodied and often unforgettable wines. A true Le Montrachet has a depth of flavour and an almost haunting length unmatched by any other Grand Cru. It is a sophisticated wine of many layers that should be savoured and appreciated slowly.

The principal exponents of Le Montrachet are Joseph Drouhin, Remoissenet, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Bouchard Père et Fils, Comtes Lafon, Prieur, Sauzet, Leflaive, Ramonet, Colin, and Amiot-Bonfils. The largest parcels belong to the Marquis de Laguiche, whose wine is made by Joseph Drouhin, and Baron Thénard, whose wine is made by Remoissenet.
