It was in 1879 that Chassagne chose to add to his name that of his best cru and thus became Chassagne-Montrachet. There are a total of 19 Premiers Crus planted on calcareous brown and clay soils. Its name "Baudines" is a derivative of the dialect word "Bode" which means "house, cabin" which would testify to the existence of huts at this place.
The Premier Cru "Les Baudines" is located on the edge of the forest, at the top of the hillside, about 300 meters above sea level. The clay-limestone soil is white in appearance and fairly greasy.
A wine that will be enjoyed accompanied by a lobster.
