About the Producer
Established in 1880, Domaine Tollot-Beaut was among the first producers in the Côte d’Or to start bottling wines at the domaine in 1921. Now in the hands of the fifth generation of the family, Nathalie Tollot and her two cousins, Olivier and Jean-Paul, this historic domaine covers 24 hectares across Chorey-lès-Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune, Beaune and Aloxe-Corton. One of the features of their vineyards are old vines which gives their wines real concentration. Winemaking is traditional and bunches are destemmed, though a new destemming machine allows just whole berries to be fermented. New oak has been reduced over the years with the village and regional wines receiving about 20% new oak and the Grand Crus between 50% – 60%. A top vintage for ‘keeping in the cellar’, according Nathalie, the 2020s show wonderful balance with great freshness and lots of fruit depth.

Always delicious from barrel, this has a perfumed nose with fresh strawberry and dark plum scents. On the palate, succulent red berry flavours are framed by fine tannins with subtle dried orange and wild herb notes adding complexity. It will be delicious in a few years but could be aged for a decade. Drink from 2024.
