2007 Domaine du Château de Chorey (Germain) Beaune 1er Cru "Les Cras" Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1245274 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Notably ripe aromas of cassis, raspberry and wild strawberries that are elegant, pure and relatively high-toned complement to perfection the fresh, detailed and intense medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine minerality on the mineral-driven finish where there is a laser-like focus. Terrific and crafted in a "power without weight" style. This is definitely worth your attention. Inner quote mark (4/2010)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Fresh plum and its distilled shadow, along with smoky black tea scent Chateau de Chorey’s 2007 Beaune Les Cras Vieilles Vignes. More delicate than those among its vintage siblings that I tasted alongside, its combination of finishing tannin, crushed stone, and fruit pit makes for some austerity, and I wonder whether the fruit will last long enough to keep this from seeming too spare in another 3 years. Still, there is considerable refinement and immediate appeal, provided you find appealing a Pinot whose minerality and delicacy are almost white wine-like. (DS) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

K&L Notes

Bill Nanson (Burgundy Report) writes: "The Château de Chorey is a (the) beautiful moated castle in Chorey-lès-Beaune, the family have been here since the end of the 19th century. Wine used to be made at the Château and then shipped to Beaune for storage – it wasn’t so convenient says Benoit Germain who is now responsible for exploiting the domaine’s wines, so they bought a cuverie 5 minutes walk away through the village of Chorey."
