Domaine Au Pied du Mont Chauve -- this interesting name comes from a member of the famous winemaking family in Bourgogne -- Francine Picard. "Mont Chauve" means Montrachet. The winery extends over Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin communes in the heart of the most beautiful climats and soils for Bourgogne wine. The winemaking team cultivates the plots using biodynamic principles. Wines have a depth and intensity that reflect the chalky and mineral characteristics of the finest limestone soils in the world. With the appropriate usage of barrels, the taste is perfectly balanced. Fabrice Lesne is now the winemaker, and he has joined since 2010 after he left Domaine Nicolas Potel, where he was responsible for its white wine making.
