While both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are produced within the Chassagne-Montrachet Wine Region, it’s the white wines that are considered some of the best in the world according to our Chassagne-Montrachet Wine Reviews. Located in the Côte de Beaune, the southern area of the Côte d’Or, the unique balance of terroir, proper natural drainage, climate and low yields can lead to astoundingly intense and complex wines. With 55 premier crus and 3 grand crus, the wines from this region are consistently some of the highest rated in our Chassagne-Montrachet Wine Ratings. One of the most famous grand cru sites is Le Montrachet, which produces wines from 100% Chardonnay and is shared with the neighboring village of Puligny-Montrachet. These wines have an elegant harmony of intense fruit, minerality, smoke and delicate, toasty flavors imparted by oak barrel fermentation and aging. Our Chassagne-Montrachet Wine Guide illustrates some of the top wines as well as the best values throughout the region.
