Chassagne-Montrachet is also known for exquisite Chardonnay. Reds are made here as well and are often austere but offer lovely fragrance. Chassagne-Montrachet is often a bit less gossamer and filigree than Puligny-Montrachet. However, it is as likely to be the hand of the winemaker as the plot of land that makes the difference. They resemble each other so closely that they can be tough to distinguish in a blind tasting.
