Côte ChalonnaiseCôte Chalonnaise (kaht shah-low-NEHZ) is a continuation of the slopes of the Côte d’Or, separated from them by the valley of the Dheune River. The grape varieties are the same as those of the Côte d’Or, as are the soils. The main difference is that the vineyards tend to be in pockets between meadows and woods. The wines are also similar, though they tend to mature earlier. The wines of this region have been called the true values of Burgundy, as they are a fraction of the price of those from the Côte d’Or. The three best known appellations of Côte Chalonnaise are Rully, Mercurey and Givry.
