The Héritiers Saint Genys in Chassagne Montrachet
Before the year 1000, the village of Chassagne-Montrachet derived its glory from the Clos Saint-Jean, property of the Benedictine abbey Saint-Jean-le-Grand of Autun founded by Brunehaut in 589. The cellars of the Héritiers Saint Genys are located just behind the church of Chassagne-Montrachet. They are embedded in the Clos Saint-Jean hill. Long vaulted galleries made of Burgundy stone jealously watch over the oak barrels. This wood is adapted to the structure of Burgundy wines which can thus express all their specificities.
