France » Burgundy » Côte Chalonnaise
Squeezed in between the Côte d'Or and the Mâconais, the Côte Chalonnaise is an important area in the Burgundy hierarchy. Although less densely planted than its northern counterpart, soils and winemaking techniques are broadly speaking similar (far less new oak here though) and it continues to be an area dominated by its Pinot Noirs. Its two best known appellations, Mercurey for Pinot and Rully for Chardonnay, can be lovely examples of the Burgundian winemaking craft and usual represent great value for money.
