Pure and scented on the nose with quite deep flavoured fruit. Sleek and mouth-filling. Great balance...with a kick of acidity.


Tollot-Beaut et Fils

Domaine Tollot-Beaut et Fils has been bottling under its own label since 1921, and the Tollot family has been in the wine business since the 19th century. Today the 60-acre estate in Chorey-lès-Beaune is run by cousins Nathalie, Jean-Paul and Olivier Tollot, fifth-generation vignerons. Jean-Paul is the winemaker. The family is so much a part of the history of Chorey-lés-Beaune that the domaine’s cellar is in the center of town on a street named for the cousins’ great grandfather, Alexandre Tollot. Domaine Tollot-Beaut produces Grand Cru, Premier Cru and villages wines. Of special note are the estate’s two monopoles, Savigny-lés-Beaune Champs-Chevrey and Chorey-lés-Beaune Piece du Chaptire. Vinous notes that the “Tollot-Beaut style remains quite classic….Tollot-Beaut is an estate that in my view deserves much more attention."


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune

Côte de Beaune is the southern half of the Côte d’Or. The Côte de Beaune includes 16 villages and appellations. Among the most famous communes are Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay, Pommard, Beaune and Aloxe-Corton. Three of the communes include Grand Cru vineyards and there are numerous Premier Cru vineyards. Though Côte de Beaune produces outstanding red and white wines, it is especially renowned for its Chardonnays, which are considered the best in the world. The prestigious Grand Cru Chardonnays from the vineyards Corton-Charlemagne, Montrachet, Batard-Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet are always in high demand. The region takes its name from the village of Beaune, the unofficial capital of Burgundy. Beaune is home to many of Burgundy’s best negociants, including Joseph Drouhin, Louis Jadot and Bouchard Pere et Fils. Beaune is also home to the historic Hospices de Beaune wine auction, an annual event held by local producers for the benefit of a Beaune hospital built in the 15th century.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, AOC (AC)

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
