Tab 2The 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.
