Wine Review - Catherine & Claude Marechal, Chorey-les-Beaune

Tasting Note

Opulent red fruits with vanilla pod on the nose. Just in the medium bodied vicinity with a good line of acidity and depth of fruit flavour. Consistent peppery earthiness, suggesting some whole bunch inclusions. Excellent length.
Tasted: 30 August 2014

Tasting Location
Splashed out on this Grand Vin de Bourgogne whilst dining at Bistro Guillaume in the Crown Perth Casino complex prior to attending Le Noir, the latest Cirque du Soleil installment. It was an early one-year wedding anniversary celebration, as I am about to head overseas for a vintage in Canada and will be away for the actual date.


Pairing

My husband enjoyed Berkshire pork belly with pickled cabbage and apple salad, whilst I savoured a gorgeous squid ink risotto with mussels, crouton and coriander.
