About the Wine
Tremendously approachable and aromatic red burgundy from Catherine and Claude Marechal. Fresh but generous style, all destemmed fruit, with little new oak.
Chorey-lès-Beaune can be found on the lower slopes of the Côte de Beaune, neighbouring Savigny and Aloxe-Corton, and can be an oasis of value among the high-profile Burgundy appellations.
Expect to find a wine of great finesse and purity that's expertly balanced. Instantly enjoyable and sure to be a gateway wine to the great reds of Burgundy.
About Claude Marechal
In the village of Bligny-les-Beaunes, just to south east of Beaune itself, Claude Marechal crafts tiny amounts of precise, elegant wines from across the communes of the Cotes de Beaune. A devotee of Henri Jayer, his wines are purity encapsulated, all wild-ferment, low oak usage and no whole bunches.
If you can find them, and think no other wine could stack up against them, maybe you should buy... Les Marechal.
They intend for their wines to be "vins de plaisir" (wines to please) - and please they sure do.
