Bourgogne Chitry is a wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France. It is a small and somewhat obscure appellation lying at the very top of the Burgundy region. Red, white and rose wines are permitted with the reds made from Pinot Noir and the whites from Chardonnay.
The small appellation (just over 60 hectares) benefits from limestone soils that are very similar to those of nearby Sancerre. Due to the difficulty of growing Pinot Noir in such a cool area the wines are very light in colour, yet very delicious.
