Goedhuis, December 2020
The product of two relatively recently planted parcels, this wine has a very approachable, youthful character. Initially a very direct style with striking redcurrant energy. This flows into sweet blackberries and mocha, giving an air of flamboyance and style.
Neal Martin, December 2020,
The 2019 Aloxe-Corton Les Vercots 1er Cru comes from vines planted in 2004 and 2014. It presents a mélange of red and black fruit on the harmonious nose, and the oak here is nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent spicy red berry fruit, good depth and a slightly savory finish that is fresher than the Village Cru at the moment. Good potential. Drink 2023 - 2035

This is a perfect Les Vercots which is a vineyard often crying out for some sunshine and boy has the 2019 vintage delivered. Amazingly pure and stunningly appointed, this is a delicious wine at the very top of its game.
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.
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.
