  • Goedhuis, December 2017

    Deep dense opaque colour. Quite a flamboyant style, with rich tones of mocha, chocolate, sweet vanilla pod and black cherry fruits. Well structured, with a pronounced tannic core, but ample weight of fruit to support the power. A wine to be drunk after a period of bottle ageing.

  • Neal Martin, December 2017, Score: 91-93

    Matured in one-third new oak, the 2016 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru was unaffected by frost this vintage. There was some reduction on the nose when I tasted this from barrel. Bypassing the aromatics, the palate has good density and body, the new oak a little elevated as the fruit was closing down, but there is a fine line of acidity and a lovely, spicy finish that feels long and persistent. Maybe the Le Corton has a little more precision? Still, this is very fine, if just a little “bigger boned” than its sibling. Drink 2021-2038

  • Stephen Tanzer, January 2018, Score: 92-94

    Bright, dark red. Restrained nose suggests dark fruits, licorice pastille, spices, bitter chocolate and cedar, with a pungent mineral quality emerging with aeration. A sophisticated Corton grand cru with subtle intensity and complex accents of crushed stone, salty minerals and flowers. Penetrating but not hard. Finishes with subtle rising length, the firm tannins tightening up with air without going dry. Nathalie Tollot noted that this wine went through a very oaky phase but today the wood is playing a supporting role.

  • Decanter, January 2018, Score: 93

    The Bressandes reveals a warmer and less wild bouquet of creamy red fruit, anise and liquorice, compared to the Corton. This is followed on the palate by a fuller-bodied, more voluminous wine in a more expansive register, its taut structural tannins more immediately cloaked in fruit. Drinking Window 2026 - 2045

  • Jancis Robinson, January 2018, Score: 16.5+

    Pure, fresh nose. Much better than the lesser wines I tasted. Real purity. Quite marked acidity rather than marked tannins. Sufficient fruit to disguise the tannins that are very slightly sandy on the end. Drink 2024-2034

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.Read less

Region

Corton

The Grands Crus of Corton, a red made from Pinot Noir, and Corton Charlemagne, a white made from Chardonnay are shared between Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix Serrigny and Pernand Vergelesses. The vines for both are planted on the hillsides underneath the plateau of Corton's woodland forest. The majorityof Pinot Noir is planted in the southern and eastern sector where the soil is naturally rich with red iron clay giving additional body and power. Overall, the wines from these areas tend to be fruit forward and fleshy with a balance of round edges and fine concentration.
