Chorey-Les-Beaune Tue Boeuf 2018, Domaine Francoise Andre
Showing more grip and firmness than many Chorey wines, even in their youth, this is a comparatively dense Pinot Noir that will reward cellaring. A little firm right now, but this has impressive structure, layers of plum and black cherry fruit and a note of subtle reduction.
We first met Lauriane Andre at what is called an 'off' tasting at Chateau Thivin in Beaujolais in 2017. Her wines, quite simply, stood out as they are of quite exceptional definition and reflection of their terroir.
