Maconnais and Cote Chalonnaise on Tasting Block for Wine Blogging Wednesday #39

On the Tasting Block for Wine Blogging Wednesday #39 (November Edition) is what our host Brooklynguy's Wine and Food Blog calls Silver Burgundy.
By that he means the less pricey ($12 to $25 a bottle) Cote Chalonnaise and Mâconnais.

Eric Asimov wrote Mâconnais: A reasonably priced wine of quality back in July.

This South of Burgundy wine region is known for whites such as Pouilly Fuisse or a staple like Macon Lugny Les Charmes.

As for the Cote Chalonnaise, David Downie offers a good overview as part of Burgundy: The Ultimate Wine Lover's Trip. Maybe the names Rully and Mercurey ring a bell with you, Bouzeron less so.

Check back here on November 14 and see what got us salivating.
