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 Chofflet-Valdenaire Givry Rouge Ac 2010


    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

  • 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

    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

    08 MONTAGNY A.C. LE CLOUClos Salomon , White Wine, 750mlDid you know that Montagny only produces white wines? Yes - only white, so they should know how to do it right. Should - but, frankly, it's often boring. And we don't want boring, do we! But you never get boring from Clos Salomon. Never! This Montagny is aromatically enticing and delights t... 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

  • Deuxmontille Soeur-Frère Saint-Romain 2008


    First and foremost, this wine is pure, mineral and tautfirmly corseted by vivacious acidity. The aromas include ripe white peach and fleshy melon with bamboo and fresh mushroom. This wine shows a particularly powerful energy considering its provenance. Produced from vines averaging 30 years of age in Les Jarrons and Sous Roches. Read More
