Domaine Tollot-Beaut’s Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru ‘Les Fournières’ is a distinguished Burgundy wine and this, the 2017, is a fine wine acclaimed by the critics. A wine of great complexity and finesse, it is drinking beautifully now and will continue to improve until 2036.

Neal Martin highly recommends this beautiful wine, awarding 91-93 points out of 100 and noting ‘a delightful bouquet of red cherries, crushed strawberry and perhaps the most expressive mineralité of the domaine’s three Aloxe Premier Crus. The palate is very harmonious and complete, presenting fine, saturated tannin counterbalanced by a fine thread of acidity. There is great depth here, with veins of blue fruit toward the floral finish. Highly recommended. Drinking window 2021-2036.

Domaine Tollot-Beaut, a family-owned estate with a rich winemaking history dating from the 19th century, is celebrated for its commitment to exceptional wines. The vineyard’s location on the Corton hill imparts distinctive qualities to the wine, showcasing the influence of the renowned limestone-rich soils and optimal sun exposure. These factors contribute to the complexity and finesse that define Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru ‘Les Fournières’.

The wine is a deep ruby colour with enticing aromas of red and black fruits and a harmonious palate with ripe berries and well-integrated tannins. It is a wine to be savoured, appreciated, and remembered for its contribution to the legacy of exceptional Burgundian winemaking. It makes an excellent gift for a lover of fine Burgundy.
