Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2021

    Protected from the west wind by the Montagne de Beaune, this cuvée has an appealing warmth to its firm black fruit flavours, a touch of rusticity and leathery spice. A wine with a grippy structure, excellent intensity, and long poised finish.

    Score: 92-94

    The 2020 Beaune Les Grèves 1er Cru has a much more cohesive and delineated bouquet than the Clos du Roi: vibrant and fresh with vivid red cherry and cranberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with superb mineralité, wonderful tension and sense of energy. This year, there is a big difference between this and the Clos du Roi, a really quite wonderful Beaune. This is highly recommended. Drink 2024 - 2044

    Burghound, April 2022,
    Score: 90

    An equally ripe yet slightly fresher nose blends notes of spice and earth with those of red currant, plum and a very subtle suggestion of wood. There is better verve to the equally seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess very good mid-palate density, all wrapped in sappy, lingering and better-balanced finale because while there is a touch of warmth, it is markedly more subtle. Drink 2027+

    Score: 91-93

    Rich purple, with a heady but plausible nose, this is holding together very well as befits a classical terroir. Huge density of flavour here, excellent dark fruit and grip, slightly dry tannins but with this wealth of fruit it will work. A good long term prospect with this amount of backbone

Producer

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

Beaune

The viticultural capital of Burgundy, Beaune was the headquarters to the Duchy in the 13th century and is now home to many winemakers and négociants. The appellation of Beaune includes both reds and white wines, though the quantity of red is significantly greater. The soils are predominantly sandier than either those to the north in Aloxe Corton or those to the south in Volnay or Pommard, producing wines that are supple and early drinking in nature. Similar to other surrounding Côte de Beaune appellations, there are no grand crus, but it does offer 42 premier cru sites, some of which are exceptional. These include Les Grèves, Les Teurons and Les Vignes Franches.
