A round and mineral cuvée, produced from village vines owned by the Maillard family.  More info

Tasting a white Chorey is a quite the feat, as this appellation is all about the Pinot Noir. The vines of this vintage are planted on marly limestone soil which dates from the middle and late Jurassic period.
In the vines, everything possible is done to allow the plant to breathe and bare the best fruit, work is sustainable and is undertaken according to the lunar calendar. After hand-harvesting, the best bunches are selected and sorted for pressing. The juice is then placed in a vat for settling and then placed in a 228 litre barrel for 12 to 18 months. Throughout the aging process, the stirring allows the lees to be resuspended in order to feed the wine.
Open this bottle and discover a wine with a pretty pale-yellow color. On the nose, there are floral notes which marry well with the minerality of the Chardonnay. This wine is both round and balanced, and we recommend enjoying it as an aperitif.

Chorey-lès-Beaune Maillard et Fils (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Crostini fromage de chèvre et amandes, Sardines escabèche, Fourme de Montbrison.

Information about domain Maillard et Fils

The Maillard family has been part of Burgundy’s viticultural scene since 1766. In 1952, Daniel Maillard, father to Pascal, decided to dedicate himself to this career, concentrating on enlarging the domain and growing cuvées in a way that respects the terroir and the soil. The domain has gone from 2 hectares to 19, shared across the areas of Aloxe-Corton, Pommard, Beaune, Ladoix-Serrigny, Chorey-les-Beaune, Meursault, Volnay, and Savigny-les-Beaune. In the vines and the winery alike, the methods are traditional, and all the cuvées are classed as grand cru in the regional appellation. They are worked meticulously, from the selection of the grapes to the vinification and the maturation in 228-litre oak barrels. If, one day, you have a chance to visit, don’t miss out on going down into the cellar where a magnificent well serves as a tasting table. Overall, this one is a Burgundian bright spark still at pleasing prices.
