The natural extension of the Côte de Beaune
"Between the Côte de Beaune to the north and the hills of the Mâconnais to the south, the Côte Chalonnaise is some 25km long by 7km wide. Here, in the heart of a landscape spiked with hills, the plots of vines have been planted on the best southeast-facing slopes. For a thousand years, the vines have plunged their roots into soil similar to those of the nearby Côte de Beaune. Enjoying hot summers and dry weather in the fall, the grapes have no problem ripening here"
When King Louis XIII passed through Chalon-sur-Saône in 1629, he was gifted 22 feuillette barrels, each containing 137 liters of Rully wine. Further proof – as if it were needed – that the quality of Rully wines is not a new thing!
