Chasan is a French white wine grape variety, the result of a 1958 crossing at Domaine de Vassal by the University of Montpellier in France. The crossing was made by French ampelographer, Paul Truel, who named it after the parent varieties, Chardonnay and Listan (Palomino).

Chasan is an early-budding and late-ripening vine, which makes it susceptible to spring frosts and autumnal rain. It is grown in a few Vin de Pays/IGP departements in the south of France, where it is often blended with Chardonnay and Ugni Blanc. The wine is light bodied with ripe flavours, but has lower acidity than Chardonnay.
