This great appellation charms both the curious seduced by the evocation of the "Demoiselles" and connoisseurs sensitive to the proximity of the great vintages. The name "Les Demoiselles" is given in homage to the (old) daughters of a General from Beaune at the beginning of the 19th century, Adèle and Julie Voillot, owners and who died without marriage. This pretty name is reserved for the southern part of the plot which is also registered under another name: “Les Caillerets”. “Les Demoiselles” is also used in addition to the “Chevalier-Montrachet” appellation for wines from the Chevalier Grand cru plot located just up on the hillside.
