Appellation named after the town of the same name on the upper course of the Loire southeast of Orléans in the Département Nièvre in central France.

In contrast to its much more "famous brother", the white wine consists mainly of the Chasselas variety and is blended with Sauvignon Bl anc. Well-known producers are Domaine Champeau, Domaine Landrat-Guyollot and Michel Redde.
