Municipal appellation in French Burgundy between Chagny and Rully in the north-western corner of the large area of Côte Chalonnaise. It covers the areas of the communes of Bouzeron and Chassey-le-Camp. The vineyards cover around 60 hectares of vines on nutrient-poor clay and limestone soils at an altitude of 270 to 350 metres above sea level, most of which are planted with the white grape variety Aligoté. In the past, the wines were marketed under Bourgogne Aligoté, but from 1979 they were allowed to add the common name and bear the designation "Bourgogne Aligoté Bouzeron", before a separate appellation was finally created in 1997 due to the excellent quality. The white wines are made from the Aligoté variety. Well-known producers are Domaine Carnot, Domaine Chanzy, André Lhéritier and A. & P. de Villaine. See also under Bourgogne.
