Chapter Six - Wine Reference

Chassagne-Montrachet, Burgundy

Like the nearby village of Puligny the townspeople of Chassagne, France wanted to be associated with the better wine produced in Montrachet, so in 1879 they legally appendaged their name.

In Chapter 6 Gigi opens a bottle of Chassagne-Montrachet, one of the most elegant burgundies, both the white (Chardonnay) and red (Pinot Noir), in the world, to share with her new-found friends, Debbie and Grace. At that get-together Debbie also brings a bottle but her's is a jug of nondescript white wine. The wines they each bring are metaphors as to their background and what they are willing to share about their lives. It is no mistake that Debbie's wine is not well-described.
