Wine Description

The Tollot family represents a long lineage of winegrowers dating back to the late 1880s when François Tollot began planting vineyards in Chorey-lès-Beaune. Today, cousins Nathalie, Jean-Paul, and Olivier Tollot are in charge. The wines of Tollot-Beaut are well-known for their serious but pleasing style across a range of appellations from Bourgogne to Grand Cru.

Chorey-lès-Beaune lies on the plains below the Cote d'Or escarpment with 336 acres almost exclusively planted with Pinot Noir. Initially, the Tollot family owned vines only in Chorey, but successive generations made small acquisitions in Savigny-lès-Beaune, Aloxe-Corton, and Beaune for a current total of 60 acres.

Corton-Charlemagne is a Grand Cru famous for its volume, weight, and texture thanks to its unique combination of soil and exposure. Tollot-Beaut’s holding is in the lieux-dit of Les Renardes, an east facing climat with very chalky marl. Just five barrels are produced each year from vines planted in 1956. The wine aged for 18 months in 60% new Burgundian pièce.
