Montrachet is a Grand Cru white wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France covering 7.99 hectares in the communes of Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. The appellation was established in 1937 and is reserved for the production of opulent white wines from the Chardonnay grape only.
Many believe that the five Grand Cru appellations that share the name Montrachet are the finest expression of Chardonnay anywhere in the world.
