Chorey Les Beaune Tollot Beaut 2018 (750ML)
Allen meadows, Burghound: A fresher and not quite as ripe nose features notes of various dark berries along with plenty of newly turn earth elements. The plush, delicious and equally rich middle weight flavors possess slightly better depth and persistence on the mildly rustic finish that also flashes a touch of warmth. 04/20 Issue #78
The Tollot-Beaut cellar is in the center of Chorey-lès-Beaune on the rue Alexandre Tollot, named after Nathalie’s great grandfather who was once the Mayor of Chorey. Parts of the meticulously kept cellar are over 250 years old. Chardonnay is pressed pneumatically and starts fermentation in stainless-steel tanks before finishing alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in barrel. Pinot Noir is almost entirely de-stemmed. The wines of Tollot-Beaut were once made with more new oak but in recent years the oak influence has become subtler. Village and regional wines receive about 20% new oak while the Grand Crus receive about 60% new oak. \n \nA good Chorey-lès-Beaune should display aromas and flavors typical of red wines from Beaune with red fruits and flowers coupled with freshness and minerals. Tollot-Beaut is bright and perfumed with red cherries and slightly coarse tannins. This is a classic rustic red wine.
