CHOREY LES BEAUNE
2018 Les Beaumonts Domaine Joël Rémy
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
|Village||Chorey les Beaune|
This is richer fruited than the Bourgogne, a clear step up in power, but it also has that bright line - lifting 'pinch' of juiciness. The dark fruit is ripe but nicely indulgent, a delice. A bramble crumble here. Red and black berries - gently slowly cooked - delicious with fresh cooked crumble-topping notes too. Very good, nicely crafted. Concentrated and deeply coloured and with some nicely concentrated flavours. L&S (Nov 2019)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Bottled. Pale crimson. Quite intense and super-interesting on the nose. Neat and rewarding with everything in the right place, even if not that concentrated. Should provide delightful drinking for those who are not label drinkers. Bone-dry finish. Appetising. No sign of a heatwave. Chalky finish.

Domaine Joël Rémy
A family domaine that extends back five generations to 1853, but which Joël has modernised considerably over the past twenty years, installing new fermentation and ageing equipment. Over the years his vinifications have changed, and the wines have a lot more immediacy and precision. The quality of fruit is not in doubt, as lovers of his Bourgogne Rouge from year to year will attest, and a lot of work in the vineyard contributes to this, including leaf-thinning towards the end of the growing season. In the winery he has installed a vibrating sorting table, and the only filtering is by a lens filter at very low pressure to avoid de-naturing the wines. All offer quite striking value.
In 2016 Joël was joined full-time by both his children, Maxime and Manon. There is a renewed air of excitement and ambition here.
