Beaune 1er Cru 2017, Domaine Tollot-Beaut 6 x 75cl

BEAU550
Blessed with a perfect south-south-easterly exposure, this 1er Cru is situated to the north of Beaune. Owned by the dukes of Burgundy and highly favoured by the kings of France, the wines of Beaune were regularly served at Versailles. In the 15th century, upon the death of Charles Le Téméraire, the last duke of Burgundy, this clos passed into the hands of the royal winemakers and therefore became Beaune Clos du Roi - the plot of the king. Big, decadent and powerful. Very small quantities available.
This is an En Primeur wine and special conditions apply.

Domaine Tollot-Beaut

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.

Tasting Notes

Rich, ripe and structured, with great weight of dense red fruits, oak, vanilla and spice. The character of the wine shows a warmth and generous weight of red fruits, with supple easy structure that tightens towards the finish. Layers of complex mineral notes, acidity and green tea. Big, decadent and powerful.
