2019 Chorey-Les-Beaune Blanc
Chorey-Les-Beaune lies on the northern outskirts of the city of Beaune in Burgundy.
In fact, if you drive from the centre of the city north long the D974 until it meets the busy A6 you are looking directly at the vineyards of Chorey-les-Beaune on the northern side of the freeway. The Chorey-les-Beaune appellation is one of the longest running in France having first been recognised in 1937. The appellation covers both still red wines (made from Pinot Noir with the allowable addition of up to 15% of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and/or Pinot Blanc) and still white wines made from Chardonnay and/or Pinot Blanc. Fanny has used 100% Chardonnay for this wine and it is rich and nutty with a long, lingering finish. A very desirable wine!
