Domain Wines / Chorey-Les-Beaune "Les Beaumonts"

In more than 20 years Jean-Luc and Paul, father and sons, established an estate divided over several flagship appellations from Burgundy. Each year some 20,000 bottles of vin du domaine are produced from the seven hectares of owned vines. This vineyard is pampered all year round with an average yield of only 35 hectolitres per hectare. After harvesting and carefully sorting the grapes, the grape juice is turned into wine with care and attention and then the wine is aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months.

The result of this work of excellence is that today they are creating "Les Vins du Domaine" with a new, fashionable, modern look.
