Located in central Burgundy in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation along with Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet constitute the prestigious "Côte des blancs". Morgeot includes several “climats” near the Abbey of Morgeot, to the south of the village. In the Middle Ages, these lands belonged to the Abbey of Maizières, who cleared the land to plant vines and construct the buildings necessary for the production of wine. One can say that Morgeot is to the Côte de Beaune what Clos-de-Vougeot is to the Côte de Nuits. The second peculiarity of this vineyard is that it is planted with both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
