It's hard to recall a more exciting visit to Tollot-Beaut than this year. The purity and degree of ripeness combined with supple texture that they have captured this vintage is phenomenal. Having been devastated by the 2016 frost they are both hugely relieved and justifiably excited by their 2017s. They have many appellations and we tasted through the majority and have selected some really beautifully-judged wines with deep colours, vibrant, fleshy flavours and wonderful satin textures. It is a domaine which largely destems their fruit although they are experimenting with whole bunches but don't anticipate adopting this as mainstream.
Domaine Tollot-Beaut has sat modestly in the centre of Chorey-Lès-Beaune since it was set up by the Tollot family in the 1930s. Nathalie Tollot is the most welcoming of hosts and her wines are among the most consistent in Burgundy.The wines are beautifully open in style with rich, generous fruit flavours and judicious use of new oak. They are poised wines with great depth and elegance.
