Joseph Drouhin, Chorey-les-Beaune 750ml 2015France, Burgundy
Very close to Beaune, this is a small appellation around the tiny village of Chorey, at the foot of the hill of Corton. The vineyard of Chorey-les-Beaune was founded in 1237 by Edouard de Froment, the Duke of Burgundy'step-nephew. The wine is often sold under the more common appellation of Côte-de-Beaune Villages.
'The 2015 Chorey-les-Beaune Village, tasted from a 500-liter demi-muid, has a vivid bilberry and dark plum-scented bouquet, a hint of blue fruit coming through with time and identifying its appellation of origin. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, tight on the mid-palate with a surprisingly structured and strict finish. I would like a little more contrast by the time it is in bottle, more exuberance.' – Wine Advocate 86-88/100
'This initially displays a touch of reduction though it quickly dissipates to reveal pretty and ripe red berry fruit and earth scents. The delicious middle weight flavors possess a lovely sense of energy that also characterizes the refreshing finish. This isn't particularly complex but it is certainly attractive in its fashion and would make for a good all-around and inexpensive house red.' – Allen Meadows 87/100
