Producer: Domaine Tollot Beaut
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.
Aloxe-Corton Les Fournières has an expressive and really pleasant nose, with fruity, slightly woody scents, alongside empyreumatic notes and hints of licorice. This fruitiness is also on the palate, along with a delectable fine-grained, tannic texture, roundness and great length. The ideal wine to accompany venison served with sauce Grand Veneur or other refined game-based dishes
