The 2014 Savigny les Beaune les Champs Chevrey 1er Cru has a little more vanilla on the nose compared to the Les Lavières, a tad richer perhaps. The palate is sweet and candied with coconut and raspberry notes, forward and generous with the oak showing a little more here than the Lavières. This just needs a little more restraint once in bottle. Drink 2016-2023

This is rich and juicy and full. There is good density of ripe fruit. Plenty of energy too and a fresh finish. More flesh and richer texture.
Domaine Tollot-Beaut et Fils
The wines of Tollot-Beaut are some of the best we taste every vintage. Uncomplicated, pure and fresh, they epitomize everything that we love about wines from the Côte de Beaune. In addition, their fleshiness and approachability makes them perfect for cynics who claim that Burgundy is not their cup of tea. The 22-hectare domaine has been family-owned for years. Today, the young, friendly and exceptionally bright Nathalie Tollot manages the domaine with her cousins. The wines are vinified fairly traditionally. About 40% of the crop is de-stemmed, though this varies depending on vintage. The wines are fermented in open-top wooden vats before being aged in oak barrels that are 10-50% new. Very lightly fined and filtered before bottling, the resulting wines are often opulent with noticeable density, always clean and superbly pure. Just wonderful Burgundy.
