Chatillonnais is a wine region in between the Chablis area and Cote d'Or regions of northern France which is receiving a lot of attention due to the production of some excellent Cremant de Bourgogne sparkling wines which are made from the traditional Burgundy grape varieties of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This is not surprising since it used to be part of the Champagne appellation.
Chatillonnais is not an appellation in its own right but a region within which appellations such as Cremant de Bourgogne exist.
It is not a large area with only 180 hectares of vines.
