A beautifully expressive wine with perfectly integrated oak (only 20% new). The nose is all florals and red fruits, leading to a fairly rich, textured palate that shows ripe raspberry, black cherry, spice, earth and mineral, all the hallmarks of a top quality Chorey-Lès Beaune.
Match with pan-roasted duck breast or a mushroom and truffle risotto.
Varietal / Blend: Pinot Noir
Decant: We insist!
Farming Practices: Sustainable
"Everything about this fine Domaine is attractive - even the elaborately decorated concrete cuves. The Tollot's and the Beaut's have remained together over the generations and therefore have maintained excellent and valuable vineyard holdings. The current generation - cousins Nathalie, Jean Paul and Olivier direct the Domaine. They have made substantial changes viticulturally and invested in a high-tech sorting table. Consequently, the quality has risen further at this progressive and fine Domaine. The yields are low and the wines are racked less; always a consistent source of delightful and serious Burgundy that represents excellent value coupled with its wonderfully stylish presentation."
