Domaine de Mont Chauve Chassagne Montrachet en Pimont
The vineyard for Domaine de Mont Chauve Chassagne Montrachet en Pimont is on steep slopes too difficult to work with a tractor, so demands a high workload. The manual intervention is reflected by an elegant wine which balances the richness and complexity expected of this terroir with a freshness and crisp finish.

Château de Chassagne-Montrachet* is part of the much larger Family Picard group, which in total comprises 5 estates and about 135 hectares of vines. The Picard group began life in 1950, but the Chateau in Chassagne (and its impressive 14th century cellars) was purchased by them in 1998. The vineyards of the Chateau are mix of red and white wines; red and white from both Chassagne and St.Aubin, reds from Corton and whites Puligny. The Chateau is a beautiful place to visit, with fine old cellars, multi-coloured barrels and nice tasting room. *You won’t find the name Chateau de Chassagne-Montrachet on the label, although the family owns the chateau, as their direct neighbours, Bader-Mimeur, claim that for their own wine produced from a small parcel of land near the chateau.
