Château de Lachassagne is an exceptional place, located in the very south of Burgundy, with a unique view over the Saône Valley. It is a 62 hectares propriety, totally surrounded by small walls called ’"Clos".
A clean, pure expression of Burgundy - the perfect introduction to the region. Aromas of fresh red fruits- strawberry, redcurrant and cranberry, followed by light hints of dried herbs. Light structured with fresh acidity and fine tannin. A delicious and very approachable wine.

Critic Scores & reviews
"Such a consistent wine, and dangerously drinkable. Concentrated blue fruit nose with hints of black, mineral earth. Palate is warm and plush for this style, making this an excellent stepping stone from new world to old, but shot through with a firm line of firm, grippy tannins. 30% whole bunch lifts the aromatics."

Wine is being produced throughout France and has been done for over 2,500 years with certain Châteaux dating their history back to Roman times, around 6th Century BC. Ranking second in the world in per-capita consumption and first in total production quantity. More so than the overall quantity of wine is the quantity of truly great wines coming out of France makes the nation the envy of wine-making nations worldwide.
Two concepts pivotal to the higher end French wines, in particular, are the idea of 'terroir' and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system. Terroir refers to the way the geography, geology and climate find their way into the glass, telling a story of the origin of the wine. The AOC was set up in 1935 and has the primary goal of protecting the authenticity of the wines and the livelihoods of the producers. Appellation rules strictly define which varieties of grapes and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or in some cases, like in Burgundy even specific vineyards.
Classic wine regions in France include Champagne (home of Champagne), Burgundy (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot), Alsace (Aromatic varietals), Loire Valley (Chenin Blanc, Crémant) and the Rhône Valley (Syrah, Grenache Mourvedre)
The Bordeaux classification of 1855 is still in use, as is the Sauternes and Barsac Classification of the same year. Wines from certain regions can be bought En Primeur, which is when the wine is sold prior to it being bottled.
Burgundy is undoubtedly the home of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnays in the world, where vineyards, or Domaines have been producing wines for over 2000 years. Burgundy is located in the North-east of France, an hours drive from Lyon and 2 hours from Paris. With over 100 appellations, or sub-regions (more than any other wine region) Burgundy is known for being the most terroir-oriented region in the World. The finest red wines of Burgundy are found in the Côte d'Or, a string of villages including Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey St Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-St Georges.
There are flavours present in great Burgundys that are the envy of Pinot Noir producers worldwide. The elusive peacocks tail finish that goes on and on, and the pretty-elegance backed by Burgundy muscle is the goal of winemakers around the globe. The main levels in the Burgundy classifications, in descending order of quality, are: Grand crus, Premier crus, village appellations, and finally regional appellations. For the Chablis wines, a similar hierarchy of Grand Cru, Premier Cru and Village wines is used, plus Petit Chablis as a level below Village Chablis.
Cote de Beaune
A key wine-producing subregion in Burgundy producing internationally renowned red and white wines, France’s Côte de Beaune spans 20 kilometres from north to south. The area takes its name from the town of Beaune – an important wine centre for Burgundy. Here, the significant villages and their Grands Crus are Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, and Chassagne-Montrachet. Each of these villages, except for Pommard and Volnay, produce white wine as well as red. Some of Burgundy’s best white wines, as well as some fine reds, are produced in this subregion. The three villages with the best reputation for white wines are Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, and Chassagne-Montrachet.

About the brand Chateau de Lachassagne
Château de Lachassagne is an exceptional place, located in the very south of Burgundy, with a unique view over the Saône Valley. It is a 62-hectare property, totally surrounded by a small stone wall, which classifies it as a "Clos" or a single site.
Winemaker, Vigneron and owner Olivier Bosse-Platière is from the village of Lucenay, 3km from the Chateau of Lachassagne, where his parents have a vineyard. After completing an oenology degree in Burgundy, he worked in various great vineyards all around the world through additional training with the OIV (International Organisation of Vines and Wines). He always kept in mind the idea of moving back to Burgundy one day. Finally, the opportunity occurred when the gorgeous Chateau came up for sale, and, with his wife Veronique, he took the vineyard of Lachassagne. Olivier and Veronique make Burgundy with a modern, global eye. They are guided by tradition, but not chained to it. French oak is common, but so is Spanish oak from Rioja. Whole bunch is a factor, but never dominates the reds.
