Domaine Tollot-Beaut was one of the first domaine to bottle its own wines back in 1921 when most growers simply sold their wines to the local negociants, and it has retained its ground breaking ethos to the present day. Under the meticulous control of Natalie Tollot, 5th generation, the domaine currently comprises some 24 hectares of vines, spread over a number of different sites in Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune, Chorey-lès-Beaune, Aloxe-Corton and Corton including small holdings in premiers and grands crus. Each wine produced is respectful of its terroir and perfectly represents the characteristics of the appellation.
Produced from four separate parcels totaling 2ha, this wine is vinified in 33% new oak. Nathalie confessed that this was her favourite appellation. Quite delightful! Sometimes Aloxe can be a little foursquare, but this is the opposite. There is a lovely velvety texture to the palate, with ripe and rounded red fruits and confiture richness. The tannins are extremely soft and ripe and the finish lingers long.
Perfect with rib steak.
