Wine of the Week


Nestled among Burgundy's renowned villages such as Aloxe-Carton, Volnay and Pommard along the Cote de Beaune — the southern half of the Cote d'Or — Chorey-les-Beaune often offers high-quality wines at "entry-level" Burgundy prices. Experts rank this particular domaine as one of the region's top producers. Estate-bottled, this exciting and elegant wine is supple, finely structured and accessible with a harmonious balance and good acidity. Intense cherry and cassis aromas with toasty nuances yield to velvety-textured tastes of ripe red berries with earthy notes and silky tannins. Drink now and over the next 10-15 years. Pairs extremely well with a variety of dishes, including quail, bouillabaisse, lamb, pork, beef, chicken, vegetable tarts, salmon and tuna. Where to buy it: The Wine Seller and Hopper's Wine and Spirits. Where to drink it: Brigtsen's, Café Adelaide, La Boca, Restaurant August and Riche at Harrah's Hotel. (Listings current at press time.)
