Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, November 2018

    This is a combination of 15 year old vines and 3 year old vines in their first year of production. It has, unsurprisingly, that sappy young vine vigour, with abundant strawberry and raspberry fruit character and a light, uncompact tannin frame. Some soy and spice savoury background notes lend it complexity.

    Score: 90-92

    The 2017 Aloxe-Corton Les Vercots 1er Cru comes from relatively young vines, half 12 years old and the other half debuting with their third leaf. There is a slight reduction on the nose, along with oaky red berry fruit (50% new wood) that will need time to be fully subsumed. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth texture and fine tannin, and the wood is simpatico with the fruit. I like the grip of this Les Vercots and the tang of orange peel and marmalade that complements the red fruit on the finish. Excellent. 2022 - 2034

  • BURG

    Burghound, April 2019,
    Score: 89

    This too is quite spicy with a surprisingly elegant nose that mixes notes of red berries with those of cherry, raspberry and even a hint of cranberry. There is excellent intensity and evident power to the muscular flavors that culminate in a rustic and moderately austere finish. Once again this is not as concentrated as the best in the range and the lack of density from the young vines show somewhat. Drink 2025+

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.

Region

Aloxe-Corton

With its neighbours, Ladoix Serrigny and Pernand Vergelesses, Aloxe-Corton has its own village and premier cru appellations but shares the two grand crus: Corton, a red made from Pinot Noir, and Corton Charlemagne, a white made from Chardonnay. The vines for both are planted on the hillsides underneath the plateau of Corton's woodland forest. The majority of Pinot Noir is planted in thesouthern and eastern sector where the soil is naturally rich with red iron clay giving additional body and power. Overall, the wines from Aloxe-Corton tend to be fruit forward and fleshy with a balance of round edges and fine concentration.
