Chassagne-Montrachet sits at altitudes between 220 and 325 metres, the succession of rocks from the top down is first Rauracien, then Callovien and finally Argovien. The soil of the various climats (named plots with distinctive qualities) ranges from pebbly limestones, through marls, to sandy soils with a Jurassic basis.
White Chassagne-Montrachet has an opulence and power that make it an ideal partner for delicate white meats and fish; the premiers crus appellations will readily complement crayfish, lobster, or even foie gras. Red Chassagne-Montrachet is powerful and tannic, with an aromatic quality that flatters fine quality red meat dishes, even those with gentle Indian spicing. The premiers crus demand your finest game dishes.
