South of the Côte de Beaune, the vineyards surround the village of Chassagne-Montrachet. Along with Puligny-Montrachet it shares the undisputed prince of all dry white wines: Grand Cru Montrachet (pronounced Monrachet).
The Climat "Les Blanchots" is located South of the Montrachet plot.
Pale yellow with light silver hues. The strong oaky notes reveal the youth of the wine and its long ageing in oak barrels. With ageing, the aromas will come together with the floral and mineral notes to compose a complex and expressive nose. The palate is fresh on the attack, with citrus, lime tree, brioche and toasted notes. The finish is long and powerful, with a great aromatic precision.
