    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Tollot Beaut, Aloxe Corton, Les Fournières, 1er Cru, 2020

    A coiled energy and stony minerality give a real sense of drive and purpose here. The fruit is crisp and persistent, notes of cherry, sloe and bramble, gripped by finely chiselled tannins, finishing on savoury notes of iron and spice. The Tollot Beaut's Fournieres vines average fifty years old, planted on poor stony soils, yield intense but velvety Aloxes.

    Neal Martin, Vinous
    The 2020 Aloxe-Corton Les Fournières 1er Cru is ripe and juicy on the nose: strawberry and raspberry, the oak here more pronounced compared to the Les Vercots. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, saturated tannins and again, here, I find the new oak more pronounced and perhaps just detracting a little from its delineation and mineralité on the finish. Yet once that is fully subsumed, this could turn into quite a substantial Aloxe-Corton.

    Tollot Beaut

    Tollot-Beaut were among the group of pioneering Burgundians who started producing and bottling their own wines in the early part of the 20th Century. As rich in tradition as this Domaine is, under Nathalie Tollot, no-one rests on their laurels and a premium is placed on quality. Money is spent on new oak every year to ensure a good stock of healthy barrels which provide the perfect resting place for their magnificent wines. However, it is the vineyard where most of the investment goes on. They employ twice as many people per hectare than any of their neighbours to restrict the vigour of the vines and therefore increase the chances of ripe concentrated grapes being produced every year. Grapes are de-stalked and wines are aged in up to 50% new oak. The wines remain respectful to their origins while sharing characteristic toasty, open-knit and smooth fruit flavours.
