Chassagne-Montrachet is a Burgundy wine appellation of 865 acres of clayish limestone located south of Côte de Beaune. Most wine produced in the village is white wine from the Chardonnay grape, although red wine is also made from the Pinot noir grape.
The village shares two Grand Cru vineyards – Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet – with the neighbouring village of Puligny-Montrachet, and also includes the entirety of a third, Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet, within its boundaries. These three vineyards produce some of the most expensive and long-lived white wines in the world
