Chorey-les-Beaune 2006, Tollot-Beaut
We tasted the Chorey 2005 on New Year's Eve whose glossy ripe fruit proved most pleasant and conquered a giant crab in a tangy sauce. The 2006 is no less charming with a delicate raspberry and vanilla nose. Delicious strawberry fruit, gouleyant as the French say, and a savoury finish that promises well for food matching. Chorey is an unsung village, off the beaten track, but the volume of red wine produced is significant: 5,175 hectolires in 2006, compared to13,281 hectolitres from vastly more famous Beaune. Why not try some?
