Château de Chorey

  Located in Burgundy's Côte d'Or, the heart of wine country, and between the cities of Beaune and Dijon, you will find the warm and welcoming Château de Chorey.  If you've dined in what have been called Paris' best restaurants --  Taillevent,  l'Arpège, La Tour d'Argent among others -- or perhaps in the provinces at Troisgros, Restaurant Marc Meneau or La Chevre d'Or, you may have enjoyed a wine or two from Château de Chorey. 

The 42 acres of Domaine du Château de Chorey-les-Beaune have been sold to another vintner (in 2013), but guests are still invited to taste these exceptional wines.  Their labels can be found on eight red and four white appellations, and a Vieux Marc de Bourgogne, barrel aged for 25 years.  François Germain has run the estate since 1969; his son, Benoît joined him in 1993; and in 2001 his daughter, Aude, became part of the team.  The château, now separate from the vineyards, is in the process of becoming a weekly rental propperty, but at this time guests can reserve B&B accommodations for the monthsfrom May to September. Of course, guests can participate in wine tastings on the estate. 

The château itself has belonged to the same family for generations and has been recently renovated to a high standard.  A variety of buildings combine to make up the estate, offering various examples of Burgundian architecture.  The moat and towers date back to the thirteenth century, while the main building is of the seventeenth century. 

The family happily and warmly welcomes guests to the château.  Five beautifully-decorated guest rooms, all with private baths and telephones, are furnished in a traditional and refined manner, all to assure guests of comfort in a peaceful setting.  There are three spacious bedrooms and one suite on the first floor and one suite on the ground floor  ~ all with either vineyard, park or tower views ~ and the accommodation has received a 4 "epis" rating.    The suites can be combined to form an apartment which will accommodate six people. 

For lovers of the region of Burgundy, for wine connoisseurs, or simply for travelers to France seeking a pleasant stay in a beautiful part of the country  ~ accentuated by the availability of some very fine wines  ~  Château de Chorey is the perfect destination!
