Goedhuis, December 2021
A very charming Grand Cru, exemplifying the flamboyance Nathalie found in the 2020 vintage. Creamy, generous, and lively with deliciously sweet summer loganberries. This has layered depth, reflecting the wines Grand Cru status. It flows through the palate and the tannins sit comfortably underneath, giving an edge of grip and energy. Excellent.
Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 90-92
The 2020 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru is the one cuvée that had slight suggestions of some over-ripe fruit , though minor and this could be subsumed with bottle age. The palate is well balanced and here, I could not find any sur-maturité, but a sensual, velvety texture and a touch of spiciness towards the harmonious finish that is blurred by a little warmth of alcohol, a whopping 15.0° in this cuvée. Drink 2028 - 2050
Burghound, April 2022, Score: 90
An acceptably fresh nose features a layered mix of ripe red and dark cherry, cassis and discreet floral nuances. There is better freshness and verve to the well-defined and more refined medium-bodied flavors that display outstanding length on the bitter pit fruit-inflected finish. I like the balance though it's hard to predict whether the nose will regain freshness with some bottle aging though my score offers the benefit of the doubt that it will. Drink 2032+
Matthew Jukes, January 2022, Score: 18.5+
This is one half step ahead of the Clos du Roi on account of the complexity and amplitude of flavour. There is a little more of each component, and instead of becoming too showy or rich, it just becomes longer and finer. This is a dreamy vintage and one of the best value Grands Crus of the entire campaign.
Jasper Morris MW, January 2022, Score: 89-93
Rich purple, perhaps not quite so dense. Ripe strawberry with some floral rose notes in a concentrated register, then an explosion of blackcurrant, blackberry and some fresher red berry notes as well on the palate, soft and liquid, though the alcohol is showing, at 15%.

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.

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
