Extensive marble quarries, which form a kind of cliff face, were the source of the pink and beige flagstones which went into the building of the Trocadéro in Paris and more recently the Louvre Pyramid. The Chassagne-Montrachet controlled appellation dates from 1937. It includes some plots in the neighbouring village of Remigny which shares the same soil conditions.
