A (by no means complete) map of important vineyard sites in Chassage-Montrachet
Chassagne-Montrachet shares the Grand Crus Le Montrachet
with Puligny-Montrachet, just next door to the north. The village is also home to another Grand Cru, Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet
(or Le Criots
). There are also fifty-five Premier Cru sites. These vineyards are planted to soil rich in limestone. The village also produces a nearly equal amount of red from Pinot Noir, largely in vineyards in the southern end of the village where clay and red gravel dominate the soils.
