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

A surprisingly brooding bouquet but with massive cherry fruit intensity. Chunky and muscular on the palate, ripe and finely tuned tannins with a deeply intense finish.

Food Matches

Great with grilled flank steak with béarnaise sauce.
