La Côte Chalonnaise

Situated between the Côte de Beaune and the Mâconnais, the Côte Chalonnaise stretches out over 25 kilometers.

Many great red and white wines are produced here, like Givry, Mercurey, Montagny et Rully. Not as prestigious maybe as the wines from the Côte de Beaune or Côte de Nuits, they can easily compete with them quality wise. They are a little better priced as well ! Take the time to taste some of these nice wines while you are in the area whilst enjoying the wonderful landscape of vineyards. Some really nice authentic villages are to be discovered in the Côte Chalonnaise.
The village appellations Givry, Mercurey and Rully are for both red and white wines, whereas the Montagny appellation only applies to white wines (the red wines produced in this village are appellation Bourgogne). Also worth knowing, the small village appellation Bouzeron is exclusively for white wines made from the Aligoté grape.
