A very pleasant wine. Bright, clear red colour. Aromas are surprising in their intensity and fruit. On the palate, a tender, supple, graceful, round body. Very flavourful in the aftertaste, with a hint of blackberry jam. When the wine gets older, wild blackberry is the dominant aroma. After 3 or 5 years, the wine takes on a distinctive smell of truffle and undergrowth evolving towards notes of venison.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chorey-les-Beaune Village, tasted from a 500-liter demi-muid, has a vivid bilberry and dark plum-scented bouquet, a hint of blue fruit coming through with time and identifying its appellation of origin. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, tight on the mid-palate with a surprisingly structured and strict finish. I would like a little more contrast by the time it is in bottle, more exuberance.
