This is a monopole of the Domaine Tollot-Beaut estate, part of the Fournot 1er cru, covering 1ha and was planted in 1954. It produces the most structured wine of the two Savigny-lès-Beaune premier cru appellations. It is situated just below the Les Lavières vineyard and benefits from a sunnier exposure. With more clay in its soils, this wine is always laden with ripe red and black cherry, liquorice and espresso characters.

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.
Aged in 25% new oak, this is a rich, ripe and joyful expression of Pinot Noir. Rich, almost smoky at first with deep dark colour, tremendously sweet cherry fruit, a hint of caramel from the oak and intense spice and fresh acidity. A wonderful taut, yet generous red that will keep 10-20 years
Great with grilled flank steak with béarnaise sauce.
