South of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is famous for its prestigious white wines, for which its mainly brown limestone soil is best suited. The Premiers Crus whites are spread over 70 ha of vineyards, divided into 22 different areas producing about 3,300 hl a year. “Les Chenevottes” is in an ideal location, next to Montrachet Grand Cru
Maison Champy is the oldest wine company in Burgundy from 1720. The winery, which has been declared a historic monument by UNESCO, was designed by the famed architect, Gustave Eiffel.

These prized vineyards, among others owned by Champy, are farmed organically in order to showcase the true character of the terroir in the wines.
