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 »

  • Domaine du Meix Foulot Mercurey Premier Cru 2006


    Definitely needs decanting to make the flavors come alive. Very bright and alive with a dark earthiness and springy lilac. Reminded me of the buds of spring, which was great on a chilly winter night with saucy fish dishes. Probably even better in a couple of years. Read More

  • Leflaive les Setilles Bourgogne Blanc 2009


    Tight on the nose with tree bark and tar notes over faint lime and peach, with a gentle violet pastille top note. This is fairly rich for this bottling with acid that seems a touch soft, though its probably only in relation to the richness. Lots of apple and peach fruit here along with mineral and gentle oak notes. The finish was a bit steely an... Read More

  • Faiveley Montagny 2009


    Nutty oak, apple fruit and a touch of mango come together on the nose with some sharp mineral hints that add nice focus. Very poised up front, a wave of sweetness from the nutty oak adds volume in the mouth. This has a light caramel/toffee edge to it that many people will find mysteriously appealing. The core of fruit, apple and quince is rich a... Read More

    An ever-so-delicate touch of butter cuts through citrus fruit. The whole is delicate and elegant with the complexity of some minerality and earthiness Read More

  • Faiveley Montagny 2009


    Bright, tart, flowery, a little biscuity. In this instance, the flavors match well together and settle pretty well on the palate. Probably great with a winter fish stew. Read More

  • Leflaive les Setilles Bourgogne Blanc 2009


    Very oaky on the nose. Apricots and minerals on the tongue with a sour bitter finish. Not a huge fan of this one, but I tend to dislike the more oaky Chardonnays. Read More

  • Faiveley Montagny 2009


    Popcorn, green apple and honey on the nose. Cream and caramel, mostly due to the oak. It's nice a smooth with a creamy finish. Read More
