Wine of Chassagne-Montrachet appellation
Established in 1937, Chassagne-Montrachet is a village appellation in the Côte de Beaune (the southern part of the Côte d'Or), in the villages of Chassagne-Montrachet and Remigny. The appellation includes 19 climats (vineyard sites) classed premier cru and encompasses three grand cru appellations: Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet, and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. Some of the most noteworthy premier cru vineyards are La Romanée, Les Grandes Ruchottes, La Grande Montagne, Vigne Blanche, Morgeot, Ez Crottes, Les Chaumes, Vigne Derrière, Clos Saint Jean, Les Chenevottes, and La Roquemaure. 

The hillside of Montrachet offers a complex patchwork of terroirs where Pinot Noir and Chardonnay thrive side by side. Large marble quarries form a rocky wall below the vines, which sit between 220 and 320 meters (722 and 1050 feet) above sea level. Starting at the top of the slope, the soil types here are: Upper Oxfordian escarpments; Callovian embankments and Upper Jurassic marl; and Bathonian limestone. All of these terroirs are essentially rocky, clayey, or sandy (Jurassic base course) limestone. 

Chassagne-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru are divided between white wines, grown on about 180 hectares (445 acres) of vineyards and representing 60% of production, and red wines, grown on 120 hectares (297 acres). The total annual production is almost 16,000 hectoliters. Some of the appellation's best wines come from such producers as Domaine Joseph Drouhin and Domaine Roger Belland.
