Situated south of the Côte d’Or and above the Mâconnais, the Côte Chalonnaise produces well-esteemed red and white wines.
Côte Chalonnaise includes five village appellations: Mercurey and Givry focus on Pinot noir; Montagny is exclusive to Chardonnay; Rully makes red, white and sparkling wines; while Bouzeron is an appellation committed to the Aligoté grape.
The limestone soils in the Côte Chalonnaise are similar to those of the Côte d’Or, but the vineyards are more scattered because a lack of one continuous escarpment.
