Chorey-lès-Beaune

Bright red colour; it’s a light and supple wine dominated by small red fruits as raspberry and Morello cherry. Moderately tannic but rich and characterful, it evolves towards strawberry jam, with animal and leather notes after few years. The generous and ample mouth appears to be both delicate and long. Smart wine with well-balanced tannins.
