Côte Chalonnaise Wine Region Guide

Discover the Underrated Jewel of Burgundy: Côte Chalonnaise - Where Exceptional Quality Meets Unbeatable Value


Last updated: March 15, 2024


The Côte Chalonnaise is often pigeonholed as a decent value alternative to the Côte d’Or without the bells and whistles. The appellation is located just south of its more renowned neighbor; this extensive region cultivates the same grapes varieties, except Bouzeron Aligoté. It produces a broadly similar style of wine: structured Chardonnay whites and lively, red fruit-scented Pinot Noir.

Yet the Côte Chalonnaise has never commanded the same respect – or prices – as its illustrious neighbor, despite the vast improvements in quality seen over the past 25 years. But, if you give the region a chance, it will surely dazzle you.
