Its area of production is located to the north of the Saône-et-Loire department, 10 kilometers away from Chalon-sur-Saône. This Burgundy appellation spans across 44 villages, from Chagny to Saint-Gengoux-le-National. The Bourgogne-Côte-Chalonnaise vineyard has a strong identity, refined by its various terroirs, with a delimited northern and southern area.
To the north, the soils are mainly limestone and produce light and supple wines. To the south, the terrain contains more marl, clay and sand, which makes for heavier wines. The appellation, born in 1990, represents 440 hectares in total and can output more than 25,000 hectoliters of white and red wines. There is also a very confidential production of rosé wine.
