Côte Chalonnaise

Named after the town of Châlon-sur-Saône, the Côte Chalonnaise picks up where the Côte d’Or ends. Generally a little warmer than the vineyards further north, this area can be a source of superb value – especially from top growers, who make wines to rival those from more famous villages.

About the wines of the Côte Chalonnaise

The Côte d’Or ends at Santenay, leading on to the Côte Chalonnaise. The villages here may not have such head-turning names, but their wines can offer excellent value for money. With limestone-rich soils and hillside slopes, Rully, Mercurey, Givry and Montagny produce Chardonnay and/or Pinot Noir, while Bouzeron (home to Domaine de la Romanée-Conti’s Aubert de Villaine) specialises in Burgundy’s other white grape, Aligoté.
