This prestigious wine comes from one of the three emblematic villages of the famous “Côte des Blancs”, with Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. The grapes come from a plot close to our cellars, in the heart of this famous Premier Cru, near the village's marble quarries. Le Clos Saint-Jean is ideally located just above the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, halfway up the hill, and ranks among the best in this village.
