    By train, imo.

    Train to Chalon-sur-Saone from Beaune only takes 21 minutes (costs 5.80 euro).

    Train from Paris takes from 2h 26 min, direct trains as well as some with one change, one-way fare from 80+ euro (depends on departure time).

    will give you times and fares in French, but easy to work out.

    If you are travelling soon, be aware that there is disruption to French trains caused by strikes...and that the volcanic difficulties affecting airpsace mean that trains and other alternative forms of transport are very busy indeed (some trains from Paris>Chalon-sur-Saone on Monday are already full-booked).

    If you are asking some weeks or months ahead of travel, there should (hoepfully) be no problems.
