The vineyard of La Côte Chalonnaise, which takes its name from its proximity to the city of Chalon-sur-Saône, extends over a strip of hillsides about 35 kilometers long and 7 kilometers wide, from Chagny to Sercy, at Tournus. The 5 great Appellations which compose it: Bouzeron, Rully, Mercurey, Givry and Montagny offer white and red wines with a strong personality, enjoying an excellent reputation.
This book is built around the 5 Appellations which are presented separately. On the map of each one are the names of the communes, the names of the Climats that benefit from the Appellation Premier Cru and the Lieu-dits that they encompass, and the names of the Climats that benefit from the Appellation Village. Each map is accompanied by detailed tables listing all the parcels, Climats and lieux-dits, with their area and the color of the wine produced.
The 561 names of communes, Climats and lieux-dits that appear on the maps of the 5 Appellations arouse interest and curiosity. This is why, following the map and the parcel tables of each Appellation, the reader will find the origin, the history and the meaning of each of these names. The originality of this book lies in the fact that it is a bilingual French-English edition and that all the names, however complex, are studied.
