Domaine Tollot-Beaut Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Les Fournieres 2008
A rich and full Pinot Noir which has flavours of dark fruit and plum as well as hints of savoury
A rich and full Pinot Noir which has flavours of dark fruit and plum as well as hints of savoury. The texture is structured and firm with lucious tannins and a mineral acidity which adds complexity and interest. The finish is very long and smooth, leaving the full flavour spectrum on the palate. Drinking very well now but can age for a further 6+ years.
Tollot-Beaut started producing and bottling their own wines at the start of the 20th century. The care and commitment that goes into the wines here are second to none, with money spent on fresh new barrels every year to ensure there is a plentiful stock in which to rest their wines. The majority of the money is spent on the vineyard however, as they employ the most amount of workers than any of their neighbours, which has seen them reap rich results.
