Located in Chorey-lès-Beaune, at the foot of the Corton mountains, Domaine Tollot-Beaut extends over 24 hectares including very fine plots. This vineyard was created at the end of the 19th century and is run by three cousins, Nathalie, Jean Paul and Olivier. The vine is traditionally ploughed, no fertiliser is brought and a green harvest means they can limit the yields so the remaining grapes can mature. Élevage of red wines varies between 16 and 18 months and the proportion of new barrels, always minor, depends on the vintage. This rigorous and long-term work means they can make elegant, balanced wines. The wines have a fine personality are of a high standard. Unfortunately, most of the production is exported and it is difficult to obtain these wines in France.
About the cuvée
Aloxe-Corton Les Vercots presents delicate red fruit aromas (especially strawberries and cherries) and fine woody notes: it boasts a superb nose, worthy of a glorious basket full of red fruit. Round, full-bodied and finely balanced, it is as delicate on the palate as it is on the nose. Fruitiness is always evidence with woody notes in the background. And with its lovely long-lasting finish, it is a joy to taste.
