Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

Spicy fruit on the nose, this displays more tannin that the previous wines in the range, around which you get crunchy, wild, small berry fruit and a cleansing mineral dimension on the finish. Quite serious and as a result, will require a bit of time in bottle to show off all its charms. Tollot Beaut's Fournieres vines are fifty years old, planted on poor stony soils, yielding intense but velvety Aloxes.

Notes
The 2021 Aloxe-Corton Les Fournières 1er Cru, which is half the normal production, has a lovely nose with vibrant red fruit, violet and iris scents. This is beautifully defined. The palate is very smooth in texture thanks to its supple tannins and appealing blue fruit. Yes, it might be missing a bit of complexity on the finish, but it has an alluring texture throughout.

Tollot Beaut

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.
