South of the Côte d’Or lies the two southernmost appellations of Burgundy – Côte Chalonaise and the Mâconnais. Here is found some of Burgundy’s best value wines, particularly Chardonnay.

Côte Chaolonaise produces both red and white wines and the village of Bouzeron produces singularly whites wines from Aligoté, the only such village in Burgundy. There are a plethora of Premier Cru vineyards here, although arguably the distinction carries less weight here than the Côte d’Or.

The Mâconnaise is home to great value Chardonnay (as well as, to a much lesser extent, reds from Gamay and Pinot Noir), as well as being home to Pouilly-Fuissé, and some of the best examples of Chardonnay wines south of the Côte d’Or.
