  • Named Chassagne-le-Haut until 1879, the village of Chassagne-Montrachet lies between the villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay. The "Clos Saint-Jean" climat has a long history: before the year 1000, the village of Chassagne derived its glory from Clos Saint-Jean, which belonged to the Benedictine abbey of Saint-Jean-le-Grand. The abbey was founded by the daughter of the Visigoth king, who had become close to Gontran, king of Burgundy. Clos Saint-Jean lies to the south of the woods of Chassagne, in the middle of the slopes on a clay-limestone soil, which is an exceptional terroir for white wines.

  • Tasting Note
    Our Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos Saint-Jean" 2022 has a pale yellow color with golden hues. The nose reveals notes of toast and muscat grapes. Ample and round on the palate, it reveals aromas of honey and acacia. A very fresh wine with a sappy finish.

Press review
    • Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos Saint-Jean" 2022 - Burgundy Report - Bill Nanson - December 2023A width of pure citrus - yellow and vibrant - but also fine. Extra volume - more structured, with a veneer of barrel - but good barrel - in the flavour. Silky again - lovely texture - then a broad, mouth-watering finishing. A beauty!
