Château de Chassagne-Montrachet is a wine estate in (naturally) the commune of Chassagne Montrachet in Burgundy, France. It is in the southern part of Côte d'Or, in Côte de Beaune (Bourgogne). It was created in 1951 by Louis Felix Picard but it is really the current owner, Michel Picard that has brought it to fame.
The winery is in the chateau itself that, in addition to the wine making facilities, also is home to a boutique hotel and small table d'hote restaurant. On one hand the winery is very modern, with the latest vinification equipment. On the other it rests on ancient vaulted stone wine cellars where wine barrels and bottles are slowly maturing.
The Maison Michel Picard, owner of Chateau de Chassagne Montrachet, makes a wide range of Burgundy wines: from the very luxurious Bâtard-Montrachet, one of the gems of Bourgogne, over Beaune cuvées to a 'plain' Bourgogne chardonnay and aligoté. The even make a Beaujolais which is one of the few red wines made by this winemaker. However, they also make some reds from pinot noir from other areas in Burgundy, but not under the Chateau name.
