The appellation

The vines of Chassagne-Montrachet are located at the southernmost end of the Côte de Beaune, after those of Puligny-Montrachet. The village is the second-to-last on the Côte d’Or before Santenay. The eastern slope of Chassagne is home to a pink marble quarry, the stone from which was used to make the Pyramids of the Louvre.

The Chassagne-Montrachet En l’Ormeau AOC covers a total of 1,8670 hectares and our little plot of 0.1299 hectares is located to the south of the village of Chassagne.

The climat is located at the crossroads leading to Santenay and Morgeot, and it takes its name from the elm tree that must have once been planted there. These trees reaching 20 to 30 meters were often planted at crossroads to mark out certain plots.

In the Middle Ages, judges would dispense justice beneath elms that were generally planted in front of the local seigneur’s house.
