The Côte Chalonnaise is a wine zone in the Burgundy region in France. It’s located in the Châlon-sur-Saône, which in early Gallic history, was a site where wine that was shipped upstream was offloaded and delivered inland. While vineyards in neighboring Beaune and Mâconnais are more concentrated and close together, the Chalonnaise vineyards are scattered with other agricultural sites amongst its rolling landscape. The vineyards here happen to be strategically placed in the areas with the most limestone-rich soils, which provide the most acid balance and structure in the grapes. The summers in the Chalonnaise are warm and dry, perhaps drier than neighboring areas owing to the slightly more elevated landscape, with cold winters. 
 
The wines from Côte Chalonnaise were once considered Burgundy bargains for their lower prices and consistently good quality when compared to more prestigious appellations. However, prices are now about the same as other Read more »

  • Nicolas Potel Macon Villages 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Youll immediately notice that the Mâcon-Villages Blanc lacks the manifest fruitiness of American Chardonnays, and whites in general. Potel has crafted a simple nose featuring notes of fresh honey and roasted almonds. It crosses the palate containing traces of limestone and chalk from the minerality of Burgundys soil, which brings a freshness tha... Read More

  • Faiveley Mercurey 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The Faiveley Mercurey is dark and inviting with rich strawberry jam and floral notes. The mouthfeel is smooth, balanced and full of cherry, strawberry and raspberry flavours. Very good Mercurey with excellent depth and a medium to long finish. Lacks the elegance and finesse of the better Cru but excellent all the same; PN fans stock up. 89 po... Read More

  • Domaine Sylvain Dussort Bourgogne Blanc Cuvée des Ormes 2009

    Snoothrank:

    dusty citrus and stones on the nose, peach skin and nutty older oak notes, support the med (+) palate meursault vibe. chewy bit of rustic grip to close proceedings. decent, probably with help from the vintage, usually not this good from memory. (value 4/5, quality 3.7/5). 90/100. Read More

  • Domaine Chofflet-Valdenaire Givry Rouge Ac 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This gruffly tannic and foursquare Pinot Noir exudes smoke, truffles and minerals along with ripe black plum, blackberry and licorice. This is a wine for food, and it could use time in bottle. Begin approaching in 2014. Read More
