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 »

  • Montagny Premier Cru "La Grande Roche" Louis Latour Chalonnaise Wit 2010


    Nice white burgundy. Crisp, tart with plenty of citrus, lemon, some spice and a nice bit of acidity. There is a slight bit of a metallic edge but all in all a good chard for the price. Read More

  • Domaine Ragot Givry Blanc Champ Pourot France Burgundy 2010


    Lovely, like Meursault but with less pronounced acidity, this wine shows lovely purity and style. Flavors abound and include sweet milk, ripe Cameo apple and a sliver of honeycomb. The medium-plus finish suggests this has a ways to go. Drink now to 2016. Read More

  • Vincent Dureuil-Janthial Meix Cadot Vieilles Vignes Premier Cru Rully 2006


    I'm a big Vincent Dureuil-Janthial wine enthusiast . I still have a few bottles of this vintage 2006 of his white Rully upscale.For this bottle, I was surprised by the progress notes (nuts) primarily at the nose. Fortunately, they had virtually disappeared the next day. The wine is opulent here. He kissed his door with its high 14 °. More about ... Read More

  • Clos Salomon Givry Premier Cru Clos Salomon 2009


    Overt pastis and kirsch liqueur aromas figure prominently on the nose with freshly turned earth lurking underneath. Seemingly polished on the nose, the lightly chunky tannins show this bottling is a few wipes short of being perfectly polished, which lends additional charm and authenticity. Read More

  • Chateau de Chamirey Mercurey Rouge 2009


    Mercury is one of the great unsung hero's of Burgundy. It sports a handful of Premier Crus such as Les Reulles (a monopole) and when in the hands of a great producer like Chamirey or Faivley, it makes wines of supreme value.As the nose opens up after a little air you're greeted by plums and cherries with hints of earthiness creeping in. Those ... Read More

  • Jean Chartron Bourgogne Blanc Clos Combe 2007


    White flowers on the nose, lemon curd, bright, pretty citrus, marshmallow and candy. On the palate, toasty and pretty candied notes. White flavors, but rather austere fruit.88 ptsFrance vs. US Blind Tasting 6/15/12 Read More

  • Bourgogne Blanc Clotilde Davenne 2009


    The texture seems to indicate oak aging but there is none. A bit of honeyed cream with hints of mineral and smoke. Summer wine? This is awesome with one of my favorite picnic foods, delived eggs sprinkled with a bit of smoky paprika! Try it with your favorite recipe. I like to garnish them with a bit of ice cold lump crabmeat for an extra treat. Read More
