- Close to the village of Ladoix-Serrigny and in front of the village of Aloxe-Corton, the village of Chorey-les-Beaune produces supple and light red wines and very elegant white wines. There isn't any Premier Cru in this appellation which is quite unusual for Burgundy. The Chorey-les-Beaune appellation was not well known 30 years ago but is now well-appreciated.
