Quick overview: The Côte Chalonnaise

Note: There are a couple of small audio issues (pops and drops) in this video. Apologies on that, we are working to fix it.

The Côte Chalonnaise is where we leave the limestone band of the Côte d’Or and move into a more fractured and varied region with more diversity in the agriculture. There are some GREAT bargains to be had here, but there are also some wine duds. Simple advice, as always, is to shop by producer first.
