Goedhuis, December 2016
This is a beautiful Chorey, with its soft redcurrant fruit flavours. It is graceful, open and will give early drinking pleasure.
Neal Martin, December 2016,
The 2015 Chorey-les-Beaune La Piece du Chapitre, a monopole belonging to the domaine that (alas) is not sold in the United States, is matured in 25% new oak. It has a perfumed nose with darker fruit than the regular village cru. The palate is smooth on the entry thanks to the fleshy tannin. Red cherries mix with blueberry with a smear of marmalade on the finish. It is not the most persistent 2015 in the block, but it is very well crafted and feels persistent in the mouth. In a word - delicious. Drink 2018-2026
Domaine Tollot-Beaut et Fils
The wines of Tollot-Beaut are some of the best we taste every vintage. Uncomplicated, pure and fresh, they epitomize everything that we love about wines from the Côte de Beaune. In addition, their fleshiness and approachability makes them perfect for cynics who claim that Burgundy is not their cup of tea. The 22-hectare domaine has been family-owned for years. Today, the young, friendly and exceptionally bright Nathalie Tollot manages the domaine with her cousins. The wines are vinified fairly traditionally. About 40% of the crop is de-stemmed, though this varies depending on vintage. The wines are fermented in open-top wooden vats before being aged in oak barrels that are 10-50% new. Very lightly fined and filtered before bottling, the resulting wines are often opulent with noticeable density, always clean and superbly pure. Just wonderful Burgundy.
Chorey-lès-Beaune, located on the plain just to the North of Beaune, produces wines that are fleshy, fruit rich and approachable. Red wines dominate, although a little white can be found. Like Ladoix Serrigny and Pernand Vergelesses, the reds can also be labelled as Côte de Beaune Villages, if a producer so chooses. Chorey has no premier or grand cru vineyards. The most famous producers are Tollot-Beaut and Château de Chorey.
