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 »

  • Maison Albert Bichot Mercurey 2010


    "Under the purplish red color, the nose is simple and medium. Dry, medium bodied and fruity with refreshing acidity. Smooth tannins and a slender mouthfeel." [From "Pinot Noir" blind tasting at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 13 October 2012.] Read More

  • Nicolas Potel Macon Villages 2010

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


    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
