Excerpt from the book:

“ The names of the localities you speak? "Chevalier and Maids Bastard Montrachet". Why these names? Three locations in the so-called Montrachet, are rather extraordinary and derives from the Middle Ages. It is said, indeed, the Lord of Puligny divided his land among his children: the eldest son or the knight, girls or Maidens, and the bastard you will understand. Each had his share and the three climates have kept their name. &bdquo
