Appellation

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru

Variety

Chardonnay

This wine's name comes from a Roman house or farm that existed in the middle ages. There was also a Roman path that went near the area. Fruit comes from the estate's highest elevation parcel and produces very small berries, which creates an elegant wine with more floral notes and an exceptionally long length on the palate.
