The appellation

This little part of the Côte de Beaune is located some 10 kilometers south of Beaune, and is where some of the greatest white Burgundy wines are produced. It is surprisingly different to our steeply sloping terroirs on the Côte de Nuits. This flattish-topped, arid hill used to be called “Mont Rachet”, literally “Bald Mountain”, which over the years was corrupted into Montrachet.

The vine

Total area: 0.4602 hectares
Planting: 1977

Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay

Soil and subsoil: Pebbly clay-limestone on a gentle slope

Plantation density: 10,000 vines per hectare

Pruning: Guyot

Latest news from the vineyard: Gaps in the vines have recently been replanted. The plants are earthed up in the winter, and are sprayed with a nettle and rhubarb infusion, and preparations of horsetail and silica, tansy, sage, and yarrow. They are treated with biodynamic preparations 500 and 501 at the end of winter and in the spring, and again with 501 before flowering. They are thinned out in the spring.
