Wine[edit]

Chorey-les-Beaune is one of the wine communes of the Côte de Beaune. The wines of Chorey-les-Beaune grow on the relatively flat land of the Saône plain, rather than on the slopes of the Côte d'Or, and for this reason the commune has no Premier Cru (or Grand Cru) vineyards. The soils are composed mostly of quaternary detrital and alluvial fills, and the wines tend to be thinner and less complex than those grown on the Jurassic limestone, gravels, and marls of the slopes from which the better quality wines of the Côte d'Or come.[2]
