Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

Tasted after the Lavieres this has a note of wild sauvage rockiness and spiced hedgerow fruit – an autumnal feel, with darker fruits and suave powerful tannins. One to broach after others in this range. The Tollot Beaut's Fournieres vines average fifty years old, planted on poor stony soils, yield intense but velvety Aloxes.

Notes
The 2022 Aloxe-Corton Les Fournières 1er Cru has more Pinoté and delineation on the nose compared to the Les Vercots. The oak is more integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with powdery tannins and moderate depth. A hint of graphite infuses the dark berry fruit with a touch of black pepper on the aftertaste. Give this a couple of years in bottle.

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.
