The 2017 Chorey-les-Beaune is again sensational. For a Villages wine from the Côte de Beaune it is brilliant. I think it almost the standard bearing red wine at this estate to me and certainly the bottle that led to my discovery of this great estate back in 2007. This generous fruit forward vintage has again provided superb quality – seductive aromas, expansive and sweetly fruited in the mouth and with great dimension on the finish. Has density next to the sheer elegance of the Auxey Duresses and has the Allen Meadows “inner mouth perfume” in spades. Andrew Guard – Importer
Since 1981, Catherine and Claude Maréchal have been making precise, elegant and finely scented wines from their 10 hectares scattered on six Côte de Beaune communes. Inspired by Henri Jayer, the Maréchal’s offer incredibly fine wines, which are pure and sleek with vibrant fruit and great potential to age.
The grapes are hand-harvested ripe and no chemical fertilisers are used. The bunches are hand-sorted and gently de-stemmed before vinification using natural yeasts. Matured in oak barrels for between 10 and 15 months. These are the complete Burgundy wines – with admirable concentration, purity and finesse combined with texture and balance.
