Chassagne-Montrachet - The Stones
Origin of the name
The village of Chassagne-Montrachet has its origins in the Gallo-Roman era when the Gauls, calling it "Cassanos", described this place as "planted with oaks". Vineyard replanted a lot in white, red is becoming rarer.
Years of planting
Nature of soils
Aargau marl, rich and deep, quite stony in depth
Reasoned, with mechanical soil tillage, plowing, without any herbicide
From 2021. The plot, too tired, was pulled up in 2017 to be replanted in
Chardonnay in 2019.
The plot from which this wine comes is located at a place called “Les Pierres”, a stone's throw from the Château de Chassagne-Montrachet, in a stony area, as its name suggests.
