Domaine Tollot-Beaut - Burgundy , France
Founded in the 1880s, Nathalie Tollot is the fifth generation to run the domaine. Originally owning vineyards in Chorey, and through the generations adding vineyards in Savigny, Aloxe ,Beaune , Savigny Champs-Chevrey & Chorey-Lès-Beaune .
Each of their vineyards is treated individually. Domaine Tollot-Beaut chooses to plow between the rows of vines to aerate the soil and to push a layer of soil over the feet of the vines to protect them from the winter cold. No fertilisers are used and a green harvest is usually performed in the summer to limit yields. Much of the depth and appeal of the wines at Tollot-Beaut can be attributed to the high proportions of old vine Pinot Fin, a very old and delicate strain of Pinot Noir widely considered to be one of the most desirable for the stunning purity of its fruit. Nowadays the oak regime is very moderate ,used as a seasoning to make the fruit characters shine. Tollot-Beaut’s wines spend approximately 16-18 months in oak, about 20% of which is new for villages wines increasing to around 60% for the grands crus.
