Domaine Tollot-Beaut Corton Grand Cru 2014 has a ripe nose of red and black fruits preceding the exceptionally rich, round and suave large-scaled flavours of the palate that are shaped by fine tannins as well as by a more evident mineral streak that runs the length of the wine. This slowly builds from the mid-palate all the way to the explosive finish.

The hill of Corton lies in the midst of a cluster of famous wine-growing villages - Ladoix-Serrigny, Aloxe-Corton, Pernand-Vergelesses and Savigny-Lès-Beaune - with, to the north, the southern end of the Côte De Nuits where vineyards mingle with limestone quarries. The vineyards lie at heights of 250-330 metres and form a kind of amphitheatre not found elsewhere in the Côte. The hill of Corton produces some white Corton-Charlemagne but mainly red Corton, described by Camille Rodier as “le roi des bons-vivants
” (or “the king of the bon vivants”). A most apt description of this Domaine Tollot-Beaut Corton Grand Cru.
