The soils around Chassagne-Montrachet are characteristically Burgundian, with a high content of limestone. There is a distinct difference, however, between the vineyard sites to the south of Chassagne-Montrachet village and those to the north. To the south, they have a higher concentration of limestone marl and red gravel - soils which suit Pinot Noir better. To the north, the harder marlstone gives way to softer, finer limestone structures and it is here that some of the world's most-respected Chardonnay is produced.
