Vineyards situation : Côte Chalonnaise is situated South to the Côte de Beaune (after Santenay). There are five main appellations in this area : Aligoté de Bouzeron, Rully, Mercurey, Givry et Montagny. Givry was highly regarded by Henri IV.

Characteristics : Givry vines are situated around the village of Givry, between Mercurey and Montagny, and around the three hamlets of Poncey, Cortiambles et Russilly. Its chalky brown soil, as a result of the weathering of Jurassic limestone, has given
