    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Tollot Beaut, Beaune, Grèves, 1er Cru, 2019

    One of the stars of this cellar. Full but svelte and really well balanced. The palate is smooth and even-keeled, offering a wide spread of velvety flavours: musk, earth, sweet bramble fruit, mulled spices and a touch of fresh raspberry and cherry. An emblematic Tollot Beaut wine, a parcel first bought by Nathalie and Paul Tollot’s great, great grandfather. The current vines were planted in 1968.

    ABV:
    13%
    92-94/100

    The 2022 Beaune Les Grèves 1er Cru has a little more delineation and Pinoté on the nose than the Clos de Roi. There is a slight earthiness at play here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and good tension. More mineralité is at play with a vivid, quite structured finish. This is a superb Grèves from Nathalie Tollot and her team.

    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.
