The Côte Chalonnaise: turning green?
The Côte Chalonnaise really has everything you need. Set in the heart of an undulating landscape with hillsides, prairies and forests, and dotted with magnificent woodlands and mediaeval chateaux, it extends like a long ribbon of vineyards that follow on from the Côte de Beaune. Delightful!
Stretching over an area 25kms long and 7kms wide on south-east facing slopes, for over a thousand years these parcels of vines have found the place that suits them best.
Starting south of Beaune with Rully, it continues as far as the south of Chalon-sur-Saône and contains some renowned vineyards and appellations.
A paradise for lovers of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Aligoté. Cheers!
