The red wines from the Chorey-les-Beaune producing area are entitled to the alternative appellation Côte de Beaune-Villages.
This light and supple red wine is moderately tannic but rich and characterful. Quite vividly coloured, it is often dark crimson with purplish highlights. The nose is dominated by small red fruits (raspberry, Morello cherry) and
black fruits (blackberry) set off by notes of liquorice and underbrush. With age it evolves towards strawberry preserves and gingerbread with animal and leather notes. It is well-built with noticeably elegant tannins. Its well-rounded structure leaves an aftertaste of fruit on the palate. The whites are light gold in colour and the aromas of the Chardonnay recall white flowers, hazelnut and lemon-grass. Rather lively when young, this well fruited wine quite rapidly acquires a smoothness which evolves into worthy body, length and lusciousness.
