Domaine Tollot Beaut, Aloxe Corton, France
Domaine Tollot Beaut, Aloxe Corton, Burgundy, France
100% Pinot Noir
The village of Aloxe-Corton sits at the foot of the Corton hill and is known for giving good-value red Burgundy that performs above its village-level status. A good Aloxe-Corton (pronounced Ahh-losse) will show some of the same structure, weight, and complexity found on the Grand Cru above. Tollot-Beaut’s Aloxe-Corton is from vines planted between 1973 and 1993.
It aged for 18 months in 30% new Burgundian pièce.
The wine shows aromas and flavors of red cherries, red plum, violets, and earth with bright acidity and moderate tannins.
