This Chorey-les-Beaune has a beautifully intense and bright ruby red colour. The nose has toasted notes of red fruits and jam which with ageing move onto more musky and gamey notes of leather and spices. With a good velvety full body, this wine has a lovely tannic structure leading on to a subtly-flavoured and persistent finish.
Situated at the heart of the Cote de Beaune, the commune of Chorey-Les-Beaune lies next to Savigny-Les-Beaune and Aloxe-Corton. The wines here are predominately red.
The clay-and-limestone soil lies on an ancient stony alluvial fan and is therefore very well-drained.
|Ideal with finely-prepared red meat, feathered game or delicate cheeses. This Chorey-les-Beaune is also a perfect match for roasted veal, a young partridge with hazelnuts or with rabbit cooked in red wine.
